Marijuana gardens raids in Graniteville area


    Google+    

By: Nevada County Sheriff's Office

August 24, 2010 - On Monday, August 23rd and Tuesday August 24th, the Nevada County Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force, along with teams from the State of California Campaign Against Marijuana Planting Program (CAMP) and the Mountain and Valley Marijuana Investigation Team (MAVMIT), raided two marijuana grows in the Graniteville area of the county.

Tuesday’s operation took place within the area of Graniteville Road and Spanish Mine Road and was comprised of two gardens located about 600 to 700 yards apart from each other. These gardens have been under investigation for approximately one month. Both gardens had sleeping/living areas set up. No suspects were located at the sites. The condition of one of the gardens suggested the suspects were not actively staying on location even though the gardens were fully operational.

Another garden raided yesterday, was located approximately six miles from the gardens raided today. There appeared to be recent activity in this grow as well, however, no one was found when the raid occurred.

The US Forest Service also assisted in this operation.

The combined haul out of the three gardens was 21,000 marijuana plants, along with several firearms and ammunition.

Evidence found at the site suggests the gardens are all linked to Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations.
