Two Day Walker Trail Marijuana Eradication

Copperopolis, CA...On 10-4-17 members of the Calaveras County Sheriff's Office Marijuana Enforcement Team accompanied Code Compliance Officers on the service of an abatement warrant at a marijuana cultivation site on Walker Trail, which is rurally located between Copperopolis and Jenny Lind. This location was pending finalized registration with the Planning Department as a commercial medical marijuana cultivation site, however numerous additional marijuana cultivation plots well in excess of the allowable canopy size had been discovered on this parcel.





Upon arrival several subjects were seen fleeing on foot. Several trucks seen driving on the property were also abandoned in the roadway when deputies attempted contact with the drivers, who also fled on foot. Fish and Wildlife Game Wardens responded to the scene for evidence of poaching, as well as environmental impacts of this site on nearby creeks. Five plots with a total of 680 marijuana plants were eradicated.

Deputies found connections and inter-linking roadways between the unauthorized sites with three surrounding parcels that had commercial marijuana cultivation registrations underway, including the original parcel that was subject to the planned abatement.

The Sheriff's Office obtained a search warrant for the surrounding interconnected locations. An additional 2,298 marijuana plants were eradicated along with a large quantity of drying marijuana, as well as thousands of pounds of marijuana in various stages of processing. None of the fleeing suspects were captured during this operation, but multiple campsites and personal property located on scene indicated that individuals were living on-site cultivating and processing the marijuana. Due to the large number and size of the marijuana plants, the eradication of the plots was completed on 10-5-17. Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team members are still conducting follow-up and interviews. No further information is available at this time. One firearm and a set of body armor were seized during the search warrant service. A total of 2,978 marijuana plants were eradicated. Thousands of pounds of drying and processed marijuana were also seized.

    Scratch one doper scumbag, couple of thousand more to go:

    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- A man who was serving a life sentence for killing a worker at his California marijuana farm has died following an apparent suicide attempt at a federal prison in Indiana.

    The Bureau of Prisons says 35-year-old Mikal Xylon Wilde was found unresponsive Sept. 22 in his cell in Terre Haute, Indiana.

    Vigo (VEE'-goh) County Coroner Susan Amos says Wilde apparently hanged himself in his cell. He was pronounced dead Sept. 26 at a local hospital.

    The Kneeland, California, man was sentenced to life in prison plus 35 years in 2015 on murder and drug trafficking convictions.

    Prosecutors said Wilde opened fire in August 2010 on immigrants he'd hired to work at his marijuana farm after they quit and demanded payment.

    Mario Roberto Juarez-Madrid, a Guatemalan father of two, was killed.


    And they keep claiming that they are kumbaya singing saints! NOT!

    someday a close friend or relative if not yourself, will have a horrible slow death to cancer. Or maybe you will have a child that suffers from seizures and is bound to a stroller or wheelchair, they wear a helmet 24 hrs a day and they only eat through the tube that you must connect into there torso. mind you they have 300+ seizures a day taking up to 70 different pills, and each pill comes w side effects. sad to say this is a 3 year old child expected to live only to 13. I wish this on no one! ONLY UNTIL YOU CLOSED MINDED, AFRAID OF CHANGE, SIMPLETONS GET 1ST HAND EXPERIENCE OF THIS HELL WILL YOU NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT CANNABIS CURES & HEALS THE BODY! THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT DEPEND ON IT TO STAY ALIVE AND HEAL!

      So anyone who has an illness that requires marijuana can have it. A Ban is for commercial cultivation. You are spreading misinformation and working to people's vulnerabilities. Let's talk about compassion. How is that the patients and caregivers were shoved aside in the initial stages of the application process only so that the growers could register themselves first? Be real.

        So, I have an owe, therefore, it is OK for me to smoke opium? Not!

        But my doc and I may chose a short course of some derivative that he can control both the formulation and the dosage, with traceability and confidence of purity and freedom from contamination.

        Or, I can just buck up and deal with life as it comes to me. Your are born, live, have tribulations, and yes, die. There is a delusion out there that the only way to go is blotto off your gord. There is another way: Embrace life for what it is and live your life with honesty.

        Stop the evil lie.

    it's not. But most of the grows that are busted are from neighbor complaints. Just about every parcel in that area has a grow on it, so no one is complaining against each other. It wasn't until they got ridiculously greedy and started growing multiple acres of weed that the county cracked down.
