Sheriff’s deputies seized thousands of marijuana plants and more than 100 pounds of processed marijuana on Tuesday in Cabazon and Cherry Valley.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department served two search warrants, one in the 10000 block of Virginia Lane in Cherry Valley and the other in the 14500 block of Agnes Street in Cabazon, which were both suspected of being sites of illegal marijuana grows.
Deputies confiscated 3,230 marijuana plants and 120 pounds of processed marijuana as a result of the warrants, sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Carroll said.
State law forbids residents from growing more than six marijuana plants at a private residence.
“This operation was initiated by deputies to combat the ongoing problem of illegal marijuana cultivation sites throughout Riverside County,” Carroll said.
Carroll did not say whether any arrests were made in connection with
the marijuana grows.
