Sheriff's Department Seeking Tips On Wilseyville Marijuana Robbery Case

Wilseyville, CA...On 04/03/17 at 1:05 AM the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 3000 block of Railroad Flat Road in Wilseyville for a male subject yelling for help. Deputies arrived at the residence and found a 36-year-old victim tied up inside his home. Deputies learned that at approximately 12:00 AM three to five masked subjects, armed with long guns forced entry into the victim’s residence. The suspects forced the victim onto the floor and held him there at gunpoint while they searched his home. The victim was bound and tied up. The suspects reportedly took over 100 pounds of processed marijuana from the residence in addition to a large sum of cash. The suspects also stole the victim’s truck. Calaveras County Detectives responded to the scene and are conducting follow-up.




The only description the victim was able to provide on the suspects was that they were Hispanic and spoke English during the robbery. The suspects were last known to be driving the victim’s silver Toyota Tacoma truck with California license plates 8U51172. On 04/03/17 at approx. 2:00 PM the truck was located on private property off of Highway 49 outside of Mokelumne Hill.

The victim’s application to grow marijuana was previously denied by the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone that has knowledge of the incident to contact the Anonymous Tip Line at (209) 754-6030 or the Sheriff Office Investigations Unit at (209) 754-6500.

Get used to this crap, folks, if the BOS refuses to consider the needs of the community that elected them.

Ban commercial marijuana production in Calaveras County.

    This was an illegal grow, did you not read what was in English? Here to help your uneducated ass "The victim’s application to grow marijuana was previously denied by the Sheriff’s Office." Now if you can comprehend what you read. I'm sorry, comprehend, that's a mighty big word for you, isn't it?

      Wait, all you growers are saying that if it gets banned you will grow anyway? Right? So this guy is just following your advice. He tried to get a permit, or I should say he applied for a permit and then started growing before approval of his permit, like everyone else. He got denied, grew anyway (as advocated to do almost daily in these comments to the pinetree and enterprise) and processed his crop. Sounds like he had plenty left over, probably because of the over-abundance of grass around here. Who knows, maybe the people who ripped him off were the people he had sold some of his grass to and they knew he had more. The cash? Well, he had every intention of being taxed on it, of course.

    Supervisors, todays pine tree news does answer any questions you still have regarding encouraging dope growers to Calaveras and our safety? Shut it down. You have a DUTY to protect us.

Don't worry folks, the criminals will be caught. Problem is the judge will let all of them walk by imposing a bail worth spit.

Waste no time on doper on doper crime. They get what they deserve.

But, eradicate the commercial growing with extreme prejudice.

It's only a matter of time before some banger lands at the wrong address, and slaughters an innocent family.

Burn the dopers out of our county!

Another illegal operation
Posted on: 2017-04-05 07:36:32   By: Anonymous
 
This speaks more to the need for regulation and enforcement. If the guy had been denied, the operation should have been on the radar and eradicated months ago. Almost like the Sheriff's Dept wants this kind of crime to happen so they can say, "See how cannabis leads to violent crime? We must ban!" Shame on our BOS, too, for allowing all to get so out of hand in the first place by not dealing with the issue at the onset nor providing the funds to monitor and enforce.

    Lets see, top 7 stories, and 4 are about marijuana crimes. And growers say, "hey, no problem"....Its only gonna' get worse folks. More and more are pouring into our county daily. Lock and load, protect yourselves. Coming to a neighborhood near you!!! Count the illegal grows around you. Go to your supervisor and demand action. NOW.

      Wait until innocent people start getting hurt, dealers and thieves shooting and or stabbing each other, who cares but when innocent neighbor's start getting hurt and it will happen, then what are you going to do BOS. This county is a magnet for people with bad intentions and some of them will have no issue with hurting whoever get's in the way or is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
      BOS?

    Another illegal operation? They are/were all illegal until the permit is approved. Perhaps this guy appealed his permit denial, stalling until he could harvest just like many others who got denied.

    Shut down the commercial grows, let the State 6 plants happen. Then let the commercial growers come up with a plan that can be voted on. For sure the plan should include being allowed to grow on commercial ag and industrial land of large acreage (hundreds or thousands of acres) only. Provide your own security, and hide it from sight by distance and terrain. Figure out how to fully regulate and tax just like all the other commercial crops.

    Until the Feds decriminalize pot it is going to be a problem. The growers should be lobbying the Feds to make it fully legal, that would be a noble thing to do with your all your money. Then everyone anywhere can get their "medicine" or whatever, and it takes out the criminal aspect because it will be worth close to nothing because anyone can grow it anywhere. Anyone care to guess how many of the current commercial growers in the county would be willing to grow if it was worth close to nothing? All of them, right? Because it is not about the money it is about helping those patients get access to medicine. It is all about helping mankind and being compassionate. Yea, right.

      Given that the city of Sacramento just invited commercial permits, it is happening. Note that it costs many thousands of dollars to pull a permit as opposed to Calaveras. They are already factoring in having enough staff and law enforcement.

      The grower's biggest fear is that the FDA actually makes it a real medicine and regulates it accordingly for the protection of the patient.

Leaders?
Posted on: 2017-04-05 10:44:09   By: Anonymous
 
I am not a leader, but I want to know if anyone will stand up whom we can follow? Someone who says "enough is enough!" I wonder what would happen if every single law abiding citizen in our lovely county followed our leader and a whole crowd of us stood outside the bos meetings holding signs, protesting this travesty? Anyone willing to start the ball rolling? LEADERS????
