On 04-12-2005 at 0700 hours the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit assisted the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation with a federal search warrant at a residence and property located off Eubanks Road, Ettersburg. Officers located a commercial indoor marijuana growing operation on the property that contained 338 marijuana plants that ranged in size from two feet to three feet.
While at the site of the federal search warrant, deputies began checking several quad runner trails in the area for any other signs of commercial indoor marijuana growing operations. While checking the area deputies discovered two more commercial indoor marijuana growing operations that were unrelated to the federal search warrant. These two indoor marijuana growing operations were approximately 1 mile apart from each other and were hidden underneath thick tree canopy.
Deputies obtained two more search warrants for these indoor marijuana growing operations. At the first location deputies seized 534 marijuana plants that ranged in size from two feet to three feet. At the second location deputies seized 741 marijuana plants that ranged in size from one foot' to two feet.
Suspects have been identified in these cases which are still under investigation by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.
