Indoor Marijuana Grow Eradicated on Amos Lane, Valley Springs

Valley Springs, CA..On 1-31-18 members of the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant for illegal marijuana cultivation at a residence on Amos Lane, Valley Springs. This location was identified as having two personal medical marijuana cultivation registrations which would allow up to 200 square feet of total canopy area by a qualified patient. No subjects were located on scene during the search warrant and deputies found that a considerable area inside of this residence had been converted for marijuana cultivation. It was determined that the amount of marijuana was well in excess of what is allowed. Deputies seized 907 marijuana plants and just over 26 pounds of processed marijuana.





Although no suspects were present at the time of the warrant, several persons have been identified to be associated to the residence and the investigation is ongoing. No further information is available at this time.

Deputies noted what appears to be mold or fungus on the interior ceilings of this house. As previously reported from another indoor marijuana grow that was eradicated in January 2018, property owners and realtors who are forced to deal with the aftermath of these illegal commercial sized indoor marijuana grows in residential houses should take note and be aware of the potential hazards these operations pose. As seen in the attached pictures, hazards can include moisture intrusion in the ceiling, walls, and flooring materials which promotes widespread mold and fungus.

Need to pay attention to whomever you rent your house to. Or if this was handled through a rental agent, the owner ought to bring a lawsuit against that agent.

I hope the SO is reporting mold issues to the building department or to whomever can follow up and condemn the house until properly fixed.

    Burn it to the ground.

    Also, these dopers should be forced to take all of their "medicine " at one time.

    POT, so good for Calaveras County. Drive all the growers and dealers out, take their property and any owners who knowingly rent to them deserve to have their properties taken from them, problem is cleaning up these properties is expensive. Folks, you are smoking and eating possibly contaminated product from these dirt bag growers!

      Take their house, are you nuts? That would be against the law. According to our Gov Brown, this is a victimless crime, a....nonviolent..... crime, so it's no big deal. This is Calif. bud...dy, marijuana is legal to the public. So what, they had too many plants.
      These are Jerry Brown's kids, you voted for him, so back off, they're cool to go with a slap on the wrist and a minimum bail, while the homeowner will have to spend thousands and thousands to have the place stripped down to the studs. No big deal, Jerry Brown's Calif, where criminals and illegals have more rights then the hard working man (women too, sorry baby-dolls ;o)
      This is what happens when you keep voting for democrats to be the head of the household, softer then a newly laid cow patty on crime.
      Get use to it, y'all voted for him.

Is this a rental property?
Posted on: 2018-02-02 04:51:40   By: Anonymous
 
I imagine if this is a rental, the home owner didn't say utilities included. Must be a whopper of a PG&E bill. Now the cost to the owner to have this mold removed, and he better do it correctly, because if he rents out the property again, and the renters become ill, he will be sued for everything he has.
You folks renting out property should be doing a walk through of your property a few times a year, it's your right. If you don't, we may be reading about your property here sometime soon.

Pot Growers
Posted on: 2018-02-02 07:11:39   By: Anonymous
 
Outdoor or Indoor grows makes no difference, Outdoor grows have bugs and mold. Indoor grows have bugs and mold. They both have insecticides pored on them. Nothing natural about this garbage. Someone should advise these master growers how to grow, any other comments by you or any other are wrong, wrong, wrong. The truth is that Pot Growers are the best farmers in the country. If you really want to know how to grow then go be with a grower and stay with them for 4 months. It's a very stressfull job and also very dangerous. No days off ever. A crop can be destroyed in just one day by bugs. Electrical is out of this world when growing. Everyone is your best friend, then your crop disappears for some weird reason. The competition is fierce. So anyone that buys from a Medical dispensery should be safe from bugs and poison, but when you buy from just a shop on the street you might get bugs and poison. Stems and seeds are a thing of the past. Pot is so strong that anyone that smokes it should know that the potency is 50 times stronger than it was just a few years ago. Forget about your political view here on every subject. Of course you always have a bad apple that spoils the whole barrel. Gee, I wonder who they are. Opinions are like, @zzwholes. No one really cares what you think. Tidy up your own minds and your lifestyle. Be a good little girl and boy and wash behind your ears and mind your business because then you won't be minding mine.

We had that house built in 2007 and put a lot of work into it and the property. We sold in Nov 2016. Sad to see what has happened to it, and others in the area.
