Calaveras County Sheriff's Office Eradicates More Marijuana Grows

San Andreas, CA...On October 17, 2018, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant onto a residence and property located in the 600 block of Ealey Road in Glencoe. Investigators seized and destroyed 48 pounds of processed marijuana, including marijuana which had been processed into various forms of edible items. Additionally, 455 marijuana plants were removed from a grow site on which an attempt had been made to disguise as a corn and vegetable garden.








It is suspected that persons fled into the surrounding wooded area prior to the arrival of investigators, however, evidence was collected at the scene and the investigation is continuing.

Due to the absence of persons remaining at the site, 9 puppies were collected by Calaveras County Animal Services for sheltering.

This search warrant followed a previous warrant which had been served in July of 2018 at the same location . During the July incident, 736 marijuana plants were seized and destroyed as well as 100 pounds of processed marijuana and 198 pounds of marijuana edibles. A high powered rifle was also taken as evidence during the July warrant.

On October 18, 2018, the Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant in the 16,000 block of Highway 26 in Glencoe. 387 Marijuana plants in various states of maturity and size were removed and destroyed along with 16 pounds of processed marijuana. 2 firearms were also seized pursuant to the search warrant.

Hieu Nguyen, age 40 of San Jose, and Van Le, age 61 of San Jose were arrested at the scene on charges of marijuana cultivation and maintaining any place for the purpose of unlawfully selling, giving away, or using any controlled substance.

      Wouldn't it be more simple to just fly over and spray round up on the grow??? Perhaps cheaper in the long run!! While in the air, do the other 450 and get the point across.

Remember the good old days of 2017 when farms like this paid 44,000 a year to operate. Now we the tax payer have to pay about the same to put them out of business. I really wish there was an app where we could chose where our tax dollars go. We’d have some awesome roads; and the MET team would be having a bake sale to raise funds.

    Yes the law is the law. Prop 64. 6 plants personal use. The citizens of Calaveras voted NO on commercial marijuana last time it was on the ballot. BOS finally passed the BAN. Deal with it or move somewhere that it is allowed.

      Lies!
      No personnel growing as 64 intended. I can’t grow my 6 that I’ve legally grown every year for the past 18 years, the, BOS banned that.

      Correct, Calaveras county voted no to measure D; which would have expanded commercial grows. Incorrect to say the county voted against commercial grows. You could be honost by saying the county voted by a slim margin not to expand commercial cultivation from what the UO allowed.

Hope some of you noted that our animal shelter is now responsible for the nine puppies taken in as well. Please also give some thought to a severely understaffed and underfunded Animal Services Department next time you complain "they" didn't get right back to you. Better yet, volunteer because that's what is helping the shelter maintain a decent level of service to the community and care for abandoned animals.

      I’m pretty sure he and his wife have adopted two Senior Australian Shepherdss by the looks of the dogs. They were at the Mutt March in Murphys. They do this because no one wants the senior dogs and they can give them a loving home.

Rick is good at spending department money to try to make himself look good at election time. Look at all the new employees he hired in a frenzy. He was in such a hurry to get them hired that he bypassed finishing background investigations and phsyc evals. There was a lot of department money spent on people who aren’t qualified but he wanted to fool the public into believing he has a handle on the staffing issue. Not working out too well for him though. Heard another cadet failed out of the academy this weekend. There is a reason that background investigations and psychological evaluations are required for law enforcement. Then again, Rick isn’t known for following department policy.

    Okay Gary Stevens, whatever you say. Never mind the 13 million in measure C money that facilitated new hires and ramped-up enforcement of the ban at the Board Of Supervisors' direction. You're such a bullsh*t candidate. Tell people your vision for a peaceful and prosperous county instead of just bagging on the more qualified Sheriff who managed to get appointed over you.

Thank Goodness we are all acting civil again. Nothing like

Could you imagine if adults acted like that, and then little kids

    The reason adults are so screwed up now is because nobody got/gets punished for being a total a-hole when they are young. It's opposite of what it should be, the parents fear repercussions from their kids. No one teaches respect or manners anymore, it's all about me me me and a bit more me. Go for a drive around the county at the speed limit and get a taste for what I am talking about.

I can't imagine how Cowboys would want their children to grow up to be Cowboys but I guess that's what they do. Pitiful shame for them that is struggling. The economy is rolling along good in a lot of other counties that allow pot production.

        Raise your cows in your anti-marijuana county, and we will raise our marijuana in our County where we allow cattle. And we'll see which county gets richer. Can you guess which one it might be? Closed minds are poor Minds. Poor Minds lead to empty wallets. Good luck with your no growth no pot no nothing County. Not even any recreational pot! No visitors will come
