Fake Eradication Team Steals 500 Marijuana Plants, Cash & Ford F250 Pickup in West Point

West Point, CA...On 10/13/17 at about 2030 hours Calaveras County Sheriff's Office Dispatch received a call of a robbery that occurred earlier in the day. Deputies responded to the 22000 block of Hwy 26 in West Point to investigate the incident. Once on scene deputies were informed by the victims that the incident occurred earlier in the day at a marijuana grow site located on Skull Flat Road, West Point. The four victims informed deputies that two vehicles entered the property on Skull Flat Road with the vehicle occupants identifying themselves as law enforcement. The victims said that there were between five to six suspects and at least three of them were armed with guns. Two of the victims were tied up by the suspects. One of the suspects reportedly was wearing a badge during this incident but did not display any other law enforcement identification or markings. The suspects left the property with approximately five hundred marijuana plants, a large amount of cash, and also stole a black colored Ford F250 truck bearing California license plate #8D04533. The identity of the suspects is unknown and the two suspect vehicles were described as a silver sport utility vehicle and a red truck (pictures attached).




There is an ongoing investigation regarding this incident and no further information is available at this time. Anyone with information regarding this incident should call the Sheriff's Office at (209) 754-6500 and ask for detectives or can call our anonymous tip line at (209) 754-6030.

Calaveras County Sheriff's Office deputies have identifiable uniforms including badge and shoulder patches. Deputies assigned to plain clothes assignments carry their department issued badge and identification cards. If you feel you are being contacted by someone pretending to be a member of the Sheriff's Office, you can ask to see their department issued ID or call 911 to ensure the subject is in fact a Deputy Sheriff or a Peace Officer from another department.

        Is it possible the sheriff's office staged this "fake" seizure itself in order to fund future eradication efforts when clapp-mills get their ban and the only money available is an off-the-book source of funding. Just speculating....but its probably just as ridiculous as some of the conjectures of the ban-uts on this board.

      I know, right? I mean, all the grows are so well hidden from sight, that must be it. Certainly can't smell them from any distance. Nor any delivery truck drivers for soil etc would ever give up a location for a piece of the pie. No way. And no way the growers could possibly have hired a trimmer who turned on them. No siree. And being that no grower of medical grass would ever, I mean ever, have any connections to the black market, it could not be their own fault. I mean, come on, that is ridiculous.

          Now I have a problem with whether "exactly" is the word you exactly intend to use in this exact situation. It is the adverbial form derived from the Latin exactus -- the past participle of exigere which comes from the act of separating that which is weighed out. Is that what you mean? Or is it something more inexact -- less precise, more indeterminate?

This is exactly why you cannot have commercial grows all over the place, especially near residential areas. You can regulate it to the max and still have this happen. No way you can pass enough laws to make criminals obey them.

    Agree, with one caviat . . . commercial medical registered growers should not be allowed in residential zoning of any type.

    This is a commercial activity. Residential is not a commercial zone. Doesn't matter if it is rural or not. Residential is residential. Get these growers into a consolidated area. Anyone not in the consolidated area (commercial or industrial zone) would obviously be unregistered, easily identified, and quickly removed.

        Especially if the individual growers vote multiple times each. Heck, one grower can vote 100 times if they wanted. Get a dozen or so growers, out of supposedly hundreds/thousands, to do that it would really make it look like the majority favors commercial grows everywhere. Not that any upstanding grower would ever do that...

Remember the good advice in this article - Next time someone shoves a couple of guns in your face and says they are going to take your stuff, ask to see their badges and then call the Sheriff's Office to check their identities.

Be sure to post a story about how that works out. Maybe some pictures too.

          It took so long to report because they were dilusional. Like some who read these articals. Get a real job and earn your respect. Imagine, using spillage from the septic tank to fertilize ones plants. Scumbags to wits end.........

              Dope growing carpenter? Still makes him a scumbag.

              Whenever I want to hire a tradesman, I meet them first.

              If they smell of dope, booze, meth, or if they look like a junkie, I just thow their bid away.

              Time to cleanse Calaveras of scumbags. A pile of skulls at the county line would discourage most.

        Cannabis is so great for this county---bet they took all 500 plants to a store to sell for medicinal use. Growing for medicinal use my ass, sorry, it's a dirty business that draws bad people. Good pics though.

I'm so happy I no longer grow marijuana. I did when it was illegal, and slowly banked my profits so as not to put up a reg flag to the IRS, my last year of growing was in mid 2000 and I was in my 30's. That's how I bought two of my properties in Calaveras county and one in Tuolumne county. I was always so nervous that I had to take anxiety medicine wondering if I'd be busted and going to prison for 20 plus years.
I bet it's rather difficult with these new growers finding an outlet for their legally grown marijuana being that there's so much around and or trying to bring it somewhere else, they could lose it all if pulled over on a hwy or freeway by Federal laws.
I guess the first BOS who made all of this legal didn't think to far past the county's financial woes. They actually did do most of the county residence's a favor, by not raising our taxes. Though many of you would NOW say that you would of wanted your taxes raised if asked (bull patties) But don't worry, this legal grow won't last another year, not without completely throwing out everything and starting new anyway. So we'll see how many people won't squawk, squeal, and be banging their fist down yelling and screaming about new taxes to cover the cost of a ban.
I think it should be banned, at least if you can not guarantee that no marijuana is grown on residential property, no one can smell it and the grower has already a legal and certified, medical marijuana dispensary to take his crop.
I'd be content to be taxed $500 more on property taxes to have a ban in place. Oh well, $1500 more a year to me would be worth the price then having some of these people I've seen who grow here. So let's not hear you folks complain loudly when a ban goes in affect and your taxes jump.
So all in favor of a ban, get out your checkbook and pen, and no complaining now or ever about it.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

    Plenty of good men in this county ready to be deputized to take care of all these f's once and for all. All it would cost the county is some gas and an occasional box of bullets.

    You were a illegal grower who made a lot of money and you failed to report that income? Now you express you bought property with those illegal proceeds, trying to launder the illegal funds? Are you really that stupid? Or are you writing a fictitious novel?

This illustrates one of the big problems with even legal grows - there is no requirement that the growers have security appropriate to the value of their crop. Commercial pharmaceutical manufacturers who make legal opioid drugs have serious security with fenced property, brick buildings with locked doors, and often security guards on site. In addition, the public at large often doesn't know that that's what they are making. There is very strict accounting of starting materials and product, and the product is heavily secured until securely shipped. Our legal growers are more like hippies running a farm commune.

If the BOS ever seriously considers allowing legal grows, they should do some research on how Schedule I drugs are made by the pharmaceutical industry. And they should require similar security and tight accounting. There are lots of consultants who could give them a quick course on how those businesses are regulated.

There is a reason that banks have vaults and security cameras.
