Another Outdoor Marijuana Grow Busted In Calaveras County

Another outdoor marijuana grow has been busted in Calaveras County. Late last week, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant in the 5000 block of Del Sol Lane in San Andreas. Upon arrival of the team, no persons or vehicles were present, although evidence was recovered from a travel trailer on site. Investigators immediately noted the presence of bags of trash and unsafe conditions. Specifically, electrical wire was found to be traveling through dry grass, above the ground over the driveway and wired into a high voltage water heater which was placed outdoors. Several other electrical appliances were powered by wiring running through the grass. This created a potential fire hazard. Calaveras County Code Compliance was contacted for these issues. 182 marijuana plants and 30 pounds of processed marijuana plants were seized and destroyed. The investigation is continuing.
