Deputies located two persons at the site and both were placed under arrest.Patrick James Owen, age 64 of Middleburg Heights, Ohio, and Douglas Sheppard, age 41 of Sparks, Nevada, were booked into the Calaveras County Jail on charges of 11358 H&S Illegal Marijuana Cultivation, 11359 H&S Possession of Marijuana For Sale, and 182 (A)(1) PC Conspiracy to Commit Crime. Both Patrick Owen and Douglas Sheppard are being held on $100,000 bail.

        We really need to thank Jack, Merita and Ben for putting Calaveras County on the map as the place to come and grow cannabis.

        All three are doing a marvelous job at it! THANK YOU!!!

          Merita has been found to lie, cheat, and steal. This is all a matter of record. She is not someone to admire or thank.

    Wow, I wonder how they found the plants? Just amazing the true detective work from Calaveras county. You guys really are good at locating criminals. Hey, how about all the meth? Will you cops use the same amazing skill to locate and bust meth users and labs

      Catch up with the times will ya? It's not meth, it's fentanyl a synthetic opioid. Very cheap from the China black market. No one really cares if you use these drugs anymore, natural selection is a wonderful thing. The only problem is Narcan developed for the medical community to make money by saving the dysfunctional mentally ill from themselves.

        You are correct I guess I am behind the times but it is not an alternative with fent it is an addition and the cops can't and won't do anything about it because they can go these stupid grower sites where they have an acre or so of farm. How can you miss that? Whos more stupid the growers or cops for playing this silly game

    Regulation is what makes the price to great for the end product, so it is a booming black market. A pack of joints would have to be no more than a pack of cigarettes. Regulation is too expensive with all the costs trying to control it. The amount of tax lost to the black market only puts small counties in debt.

    The regulation being proposed is not regulation - it is a pass to pollute and disturb neighbors. Pay attention.
