SUMMARY:

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department - Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET) served a search warrant at the location after learning about illegal narcotic activity. Investigators found an outdoor marijuana grow in the rear yard with over 200 marijuana plants and over 30 pounds of processed marijuana. Evidence found suggests the grow was operating for several months. A short-barreled shotgun was also found on the property. Investigators are following up on suspect leads to identify those responsible for the grow operation.

California’s newest form of marijuana laws, known as MAUCRSA, went into full effect on January 1st. The County of San Bernardino has an ordinance prohibiting Commercial Cannabis Activity which includes the outdoor cultivation of marijuana.

Generally, large marijuana grows, such as this one, require local and state licensing. No licenses have been issued to the tenants or property owners. The suspect(s) will face criminal charges for the illegal Cultivation of Cannabis; over 6 plants, Sales/Transportation of Cannabis and Possession of an Illegal Firearm.
