Two More Illegal Grow Sites Busted

Two More Illegal Grow Sites Busted

As harvest time approaches in the marijuana fields of Calaveras County, the Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team assisted County Code Enforcement Officers with the execution of Marijuana Abatement Warrants at two unregistered marijuana cultivation sites yesterday.  These sites were located on Arapaho Lane in Burson and off Michel Road in Mountain Ranch.   The abatement warrants were obtained after a civil hearing to determine if the Burson cultivation site was within the scope of Calaveras County’s Marijuana Regulation and Registration program.   977 marijuana plants totaling 2,600lbs were eradicated from the Arapaho Lane location where the property was found to have been littered with garbage and construction debris.  Additionally, 303 plants were eradicated from the Michel Road address where other possible code violations were noted for future follow up.
