Over 30 Arrests Made in Latest Grow Raid

The San Bernardino sheriff's department seized 33,189 marijuana plants, 8,588 pounds of processed marijuana, nine guns, and more than $24,000 in cash this week. 


26 search warrants were served in Lucerne Valley, San Bernardino, Twentynine Palms, Wonder Valley, Helendale, Newberry Springs, Pinon Hills, Phelan, Daggett, Barstow, and Rancho Cucamonga. 


Suspects were cited or booked on charges of cultivation of cannabis over six plants, possession for sales of marijuana, illegal water discharge, and possession of a firearm with obliterated serial number. The department found 211 outdoor greenhouses and 2 indoor farms at these locations.


Authorities had received numerous complaints about large outdoor and indoor illegal marijuana cultivations in these areas.


The investigations revealed the cannabis cultivations were not in compliance with California’s Medical and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act and San Bernardino County’s ordinance prohibiting commercial cannabis activity, which includes growing marijuana plants outdoors.
