Four Arrested for Illegal Marijuana Cultivation in Railroad Flat

Rail Road Flat, CA...On 9-20-17 at about 9:00am, members of the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant at a location in the 400 block of Ridge Road, Railroad Flat. Investigators had identified several hundred marijuana plants growing at this location. The property was not registered as a commercial medical cannabis cultivation site through the Calaveras County Planning Department.




Four subjects were arrested for illegal cultivation of marijuana - 11358(c) H&S and criminal conspiracy - 182 PC. All of these subjects are from Sacramento. Somporn Vannasing (age 51), Joshua Arduini (age 24), Leon Keo (age 25), and Thongdee Phuangtan (age 20). Phuangtan was also charged with 29800(a)PC - felon in possession of a firearm and 30305(a)(1)PC – felon in possession of ammunition. A total of four firearms, miscellaneous ammunition, and a set of body armor were seized during this search warrant service.

503 marijuana plants were eradicated as well as approx. 95 pounds of processed marijuana (leaves and stems)

    They do profile themselves but then a lot of white idiots do also. They are all crooks in some way or other.

One more down. Hopefully other illegal growers will get a hint and get out of the County before the Sheriff's Team puts them in the slammer and destroys their crop.

Mark your calendars as well. Rumor is cannabis will be on the October BoS agenda. Possibly the final EIR as well. Its to be discussed by the Planning Commission next week. Making progress toward either stricter controls and regulations (ideally getting all grows of more than 6 plants for personal use out of ALL residential zones) or a total ban. The status quo does not work for any of us non-growers.

    Look south to Tuolumne to see how they are handling growers. You don't see any pot problems there (compared to Calaveras). Their BOS must have been paying attention.

      Yes, look south at Tuolumne counties meth and homeless problem. Then ask yourself which is the lesser of two evils?

    Fork them Asian pieces of crap. Burn them in a brush pile. That is the best they deserve. They come here to take us over, fork them. Kill them and all of their kind.
