According to a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, dated Feb. 15, 2012:

On Feb. 15, 2012, at approximately 11:00 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Community Response Unit conducted a probation search in the 200 Block of Alder Grove Road, Arcata.  When deputies arrived at the residence they met with probationer Colin Baldridge, 31 years, along with Paul Cohen, 56 years and Jimi Suma 37 years. All three of the men lived in the residence.

Deputies searched the residence and located 171 growing marijuana plants, 200 pounds of processed marijuana bud worth an estimated $400,000, along with half a gram of cocaine, 1.5 grams of methamphetamine and 451 grams of Hash estimated to be worth $3000. Deputies also located packaging materials, scales, pay and owe sheets and over $3,000 of cash which is consistent with sales of marijuana and illegal drugs.
