This Northern California pot bust took place in June 2017.
(LAKE COUNTY, Calif.) - For the record: 2 search warrants on the morning of Monday, June 12th, 2017, resulting in the seizure of 45,274 marijuana plants, 186 pounds of processed marijuana and 6 arrests.
The service of 2 search warrants by the Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit with assistance from the County of Mendocino Marijuana Eradication team (COMMET) and the California National Guard Drug Task Force has resulted in the seizure of 2 firearms, 45,274 marijuana plants, approximately 186 pounds of processed marijuana, and 6 arrests.
Personnel from the Sheriff’s Office, COMMET and the National Guard simultaneously executed 2 search warrants in the 24000 block of East State Highway 20, Clearlake Oaks, California, in an area formerly known as the Oasis Motocross.
Four subjects were detained at a large scale marijuana complex with both outdoor and greenhouse marijuana plants. Two other subjects were detained on an adjacent land parcel where thousands of marijuana plants were being cultivated on a mountain side.
Another subject was later located walking along East State Highway 20. The investigation led to the arrest of 58 year old Jeffrey Mann, 51 year old She Huang, 46 year old Xiaofeng Wang, 51 year old Tanng Zhili, 39 year old Martin Arellano-Carillo, and 29 year old Severiano Carrillo-Alvarado.
During a search of the large scale marijuana complex deputies seized 2 firearms, 118 approximately one pound bags of manicured marijuana bud, and 1883 marijuana plants.
The water source for the grow site was being supplied in-part by a pond with unpermitted grading.
During a search of the adjacent parcel, detectives seized 43,052 marijuana plants growing on a mountain side, 339 marijuana plants growing near a cabin and approximately 68 pounds of processed marijuana drying inside the cabin.
The water source for that grow site was being diverted from a creek with a gasoline pump to a mountain top man-made reservoir.
The Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit says it "will continue its efforts to eradicate narcotics from the communities of Lake County and seize the suspected profits of drug trafficking for asset forfeiture whenever possible".
