According to a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, dated Sept. 6, 2012:
On 09-06-2012 at about 10:00 am the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, assisted by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, served a search warrant at a parcel of property located in the 5600 block of Kneeland Road. Officers located a commercial marijuana growing operation on the property. No one was at home when the search warrant was served. Officers seized 2,788 growing marijuana plants from the property that ranged in size from 6 inches to 5 feet in height. The marijuana was being grown in two greenhouse type structures on the property plus an indoor marijuana growing structure. Officers seized 117 pounds of drying marijuana, 2 rifles and 5 handguns from the residence. Officers seized approximately $ 11,000 dollars in cash for possible asset forfeiture from the residence.
Officers noticed a possible electrical fire hazard with the indoor marijuana growing operation. They then contacted Humboldt County Building and Planning Department who responded to the scene. Humboldt County Building and Planning Department then inspected the electrical wiring and determined it to be an electrical fire hazard. PG&E was then contacted to disconnect the electrical service to the property. One suspect has been identified in this case and an arrest warrant will be sought through the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office for cultivation and possession for sales of marijuana.
This case is still under investigation by the Humboldt County Drug Task Force.
