Calaveras Marijuana Grower Flees Minnesota Traffic Stop Later Arrested for Warrant

Nobles County, Minnesota...The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office was notified about one of our recent arrestees that fled a traffic stop in Minnesota. The Sheriff’s Office was informed that on 11-7-17 at about 0130 hours, a Minnesota State Patrol trooper conducted a traffic stop on Interstate I-90 in Nobles County for expired California registration on a Ford Expedition. The State Trooper noted the smell of marijuana about the vehicle with numerous duffle bags inside. The driver, Peter Vue (age 24) denied consent to search the vehicle and fled on foot when questioned further. He was not captured at that time. 227 pounds of marijuana were seized from the vehicle. Troopers suspect that Vue was travelling from California to the Saint Paul, Minnesota area. A warrant was issued for Vue’s arrest and he was later taken into custody in Ramsey County.




Peter Vue was previously arrested by the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office on 9-29-17 during a search warrant at an illegal marijuana cultivation site in Copperopolis where 127 marijuana plants were eradicated. He spent 29 days in CCSO custody and on 10-27-17 he plead guilty/no contest to charges of 32310PC - possession of large capacity magazine, 23920PC - possession of altered firearm and 11358H&S – illegal marijuana cultivation.

      How did Peter Vue end up in Minnesota with 227lbs of weed?
      Why that's just plain illegal to transport that "Medical" Marijuana out of county!

      No, No, No! Hang them by the gonads. He's got the gonads to be stupid! An expired vehicle license?! Especially a expired California license. Maybe DMV couldn't find the time to renew or maybe they lost the payment for the license or maybe he was doing a permanent move from California.

      I agree, that’s a great idea! Then we can get on with the business this county should be in, like science, technology, advanced astrophysics, or anything that requires a high level of intelligence with clear concise thought. When I read the comment section here in The Pine Tree I just cannot understand what has been holding us back! Let’s go men!

    I am with you on this. The man should not have been out of jail on the earlier charges. And I am annoyed at the constant statements that bringing growers into this county did not increase the crime rate which is a laughable claim.

Lucky for us, it seems all kinds of criminals get pulled over for broken tail lights, expired tags and such - essentially stupid things they didn't get around to.

    The above comment tells the true story. Entirely to dilusional to take care of business like a normal person would do. Get the dopers “out” of here and this county can be profitable for all the good people that live here.....we don’t want them, need them nor respect them....ruthless scumbags is a understatement. We all know this weed is going out of state for a higher price......

An Asian Crip Gang Banger and he is a legal grower in Calaveras County???? thought they did criminal checks????? Good they caught him there, transportation of a controlled substance for sales, violation of federal laws transporting over state lines, local laws there hopefully are felonies, maybe he won't come back too soon!! Nice of the last BOS to send these type of people personal invitations to become part of our community, Ponte, you should be proud!!!

      Stand to be corrected, illegal!!!!!! No difference, the low life's were not here until the urgency ordinance, would have rather not had an ordinance at all, at least the ones that were growing then were not blatant and we did not have the Asian invasion like now.........

A true resemblance to Charles Ng, for those of you that don't know the name, spend a little time in the San Andreas cemetery above CHS, there is a grave stone that carries the remains of all the women that A-Hole killed! How sad our country has become, growing, selling, carrying illegal weapons, but yet you drive around in a vehicle with expired registration, you dope growers match your product, DOPE!

        This is a totally unfair comment.
        Tofanelli did not get elected to ban cannabis. He got elected to look at the situation and come up with a viable solution for homeowners and the county. That is what he is doing.

He plead guilty to two firearms charges and is already out of jail? I'd like to know how that happened.

I do not like the NRA but they appear to be correct in stating current gun laws are not enforced. Or, in this case, enforced without consequence.

      There were court orders requiring the prison population be decreased. So you can't blame Brown for that.

      But Calaveras County has a new jail that is suppose to have plenty of capacity. I want to know if this guy was not held in it because the county is too cheap or broke to hold inmates. If so, this needs to come up to the BOS. And the Sherriff's office, DA and judges need to make the county criminal justice system work. Somebody is not doing their job.

Pot's harmless
Posted on: 2017-12-06 03:39:18   By: Anonymous
 
Well-marked gang member with priors drives a vehicle with expired tags and 227 lbs of pot across the county.

Do we need any more evidence than this that pot screws up the brain? Did this guy even have a brain left in there? The only thing dumber than this is the people who let garbage like him back out on the street. He's even wearing a sign on his chest declaring his lifetime commitment to a life of crime. ... and somebody thinks he deserves to be on our side of the bars.

      This so-called industry does not belong in Calaveras County, our BOS do not at all respect what the majority of people in this county DON'T want. Sure, there are lots of people who want it but many many more that don't. We have a criminal element here that will continue to make this county less safe than it was just a few years ago.
