San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and Empyreal Resolve Case

May 6, 2022

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and executives from Empyreal Enterprises, LLC recently engaged in meaningful conversations regarding the circumstances of traffic stops that led to Empyreal’s recent litigation.  Both parties understand that each were acting in good faith when the stops were conducted and have come to an understanding that will enable both sides to move forward amicably. Both sides also acknowledge that Empyreal is part of the solution to help with financial transparency and that San Bernardino Deputies are not highway robbers as previously reported in the media.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department will continue its mission to fight illegal marijuana grows and criminal enterprises through its Narcotics Division. Empyreal will continue operating in San Bernardino County, working with law enforcement in the area for the benefit of citizens and local business owners.
On April 13, 2022, the United States Attorney’s Office and Empyreal entered into a settlement agreement whereby the federal government returned 100% of seized funds to Empyreal.  The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department supported this outcome. The remaining parties are glad to resolve the remainder of the case through non-financial settlement and dismissal.
