Three Hydesville residents are in the slammer on half a million dollars bail after an alleged drug manufacturing house was taken down yesterday morning.

At about 7:45 a.m. on Jan. 31, the Community Response Unit of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant issued by the local Superior Court at a residence at the 3100 block of Greybrook Lane in Hydesville.  Law enforcement acted on a series of complaints about drug activity at the home, which is located near a daycare center, according to a press statement by lieutenant Steve Knight.

Upon entering the residence, deputies found 113 growing marijuana plants, 33 pounds of bud packaged for sale, a scale, a rifle, a handgun and $3,800 in cash, along with items consistent with hash manufacturing, including 141 empty butane bottles.

The charges stacked up against the three residents included manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, cultivation of marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale.

Arrested and imprisoned in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility were: 31-year-old Matthew Gary Caston, 58-year-old Thomas Dennis Miranda and 31-year-old Sarah Rachel Miranda.  Their bail was set for $500,000 each.

Members of the public with information regarding this case or criminal related activity are encouraged to call the HCSO at (707) 445-7251 or their Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.

    33 pounds processed, only 113 plants growing, sounds like others were involved. Rumor has it Tom has once already taken the fall for his family, years ago. Wonder if he’ll do it again? I hope he talks and they all get what they deserve.

  3. Jake says:

    Wow, and they’re already all out of jail too. Not to worry though, Gallegos doesn’t tolerate this type of thing. 900 hours of community service ought to teach these fools a lesson or two. Ha Ha

  4. zak says:

    OMG 900 hours! They shouldnt get shit they were ratted out and its goddamn humboldt county. Did they find Hash? I heard from great source they blew Mr. Mirandas safe and robbed him the guns were locked up and registered to Mr. Miranda the cops are worse than theifs because they rob you and charge you like its a crime to posses money. There were 4 lights and half the plants were babies sounds like they were doing what the rest this county does. Does anybody even remember Hurwitz and what he did to Pacific Lumber. Paul Gallegos campaign off that and didnt do shit accept shut it down real way to help economy Mr Gallegos now hes sending out sheriffs to rob growers for the money, so Jake ur either A dumb mother fucker or u dont know shit cause ur not from here so leave ur stupid fucked up comments to urself u stupid fuck!

    Hey JJ or should I also say Jordon…!! Like you have any room to talk!!! Look at all that you have put your 5 children through… Not to mention the fact that you are not even involved in the oldest 2 kids lives!!! Looks to me like you have absolutely no room to talk!! Stay out of this!! Obviously you do not know what you are talking about!! Nice try though!!! None of these people deserve to perish nor do they deserve to go to prison!!! And dropping the soap??? Doesn’t that only pertain to men??? You’re the one that likes it in the a**!! I’m glad they are all out of jail!! They don’t deserve to be there! HUmboldt County is known for its weed content!! I hope they get off with NO charges!! Sarah has no priors!!! A clean record for that matter…. Don’t be so quick to judge!!! IF YOU DIDN’T HEAR IT WITH YOUR OWN EARS OR SEE IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES, THEN DON’T INVENT IT WITH YOUR SMALL MIND AND SHARE IT WITH YOUR BIG MOUTH!!!!P.S….. The media LIES!!!! Nearly everything in all of the media published is a bunch of bull shit!!!!! So, before you are so quick to post a comment maybe you should consider the evidence in the case rather than the bull shit posted and written by mindless people who are just looking for a good story!!!

    Zak, Sounds like you know a little too much about these upstanding individuals , excuse me ‘Mr. Miranda, Mr. Caston & Ms. Miranda.’ FYI Selling dope is a crime, 33 pounds is alot, non drug dealers don’t have cash and guns locked up in a safe. The money was taken because it was earned by selling dope. Medical bullshit front won’t work all of the time you idiots. Just because all of your dirtbag retard buddies sell and grow dope doesn’t mean you have too & certainly doesn’t mean everyone does. Speak for yourself hash breath. Dennis & Matt have both been busted before and they won’t ever do anything different because they don’t know how. Oh & Gallegos is a chump, that was sarcasm you dip. Community Service is a joke, and thats why all of you dirtbags that don’t pay taxes continue to grow dope here because there are no consequences. People are moving here from all over the U.S., haven’t you noticed? Where else can you commit a straight felony and not even spend any time in jail? Not too many.
    Get a real job scumballs, next it will be you that gets pistol whipped by some coon while making a deal, or gets a shotgun pulled on you while you’re watching ESPN with your 4 year old son because you’ve got 33 pounds of weed in your garage and a wad of cash in your sock drawer. Most people don’t want drug dealers near their families or in their neighborhoods.
    Did they find hash? I don’t know, wasnt there & never would have been. Psssht

    • Bailey says:

      They are upstanding individuals!!! If you don’t know them how can you be so quick to judge?? Furthermore, 33 lbs. were never found at the residence!! The media just says whatever they want to… In addition, you have no idea how that money was earned… Mr. Miranda has a full time job, and is very good at saving his money! Who the hell is Dennis?? I personally think youre a douche bag… Why do you care so much about this anyway?? Are you commenting on the Arcata hash bust or the gun fight in orick?? You need to get a life! No hash was found!!! It’s apparent that you are just rambling and have no idea what is really going on around here in general…. but epecially in this case…

  7. Joe says:

    Sounds like theres alot of talk about nothing. The only people that know what went on that day are those that where there. Who are we to judge what people do with there lives. To each their own.

    • Joe says:

      Well Jake ive already heard what the DA has offered them and its less than ur 800 community service so called sarcasm whatever comment ur stupid ass fuck and thats with Mr. Caston having prior felony and all there representatives said no dont take it, go to trial cause the warrant was unjustified and we got robbed by blowing safe that has paerwork proof where it came from so you really dont know shit and his names tom not Dennis you fucking retard and he has no priors. The marijuana was trim not bud like u read or heard.Stop making comments cause u look really stupid just watch what happens. Its fucking weed u retard leave Humboldt!

    • Bailey says:

      Thanks Joe :) Thats whats up!

  8. Jake says:

    Ooooh, good one dip. Have fun with all your dopegrowing dirtbag dummies. Hope they go to prison, maybe next time. I’m sure you’ll be in the news next. And remember, get a life.

  9. Joe says:

    U really prove how stupid u really are Jake check the laws they dont send drug offenders to prison as of Jan 1 2012. Unless u want to keep looking stupid take my advice and stop posting cause your last one was such a good come back. Ur momma!

  10. Jake says:

    Ur right bro. Prison for non violent offenders is now the county jail thanks 2 the state being broke. So what do u propose? a free 4 all? It almost is thanx 2 prop. 215, everyone & their mom is growing pot. Every once in a while someone gets nailed. U & I both know prison or jail only creates worse & hateful people. People kept from their families, loss of dignity, loss of face, loss of inner calm. Im sure Tom & Dennis would rather do something more productive. If things were easier in the world there would be no need 2 smoke dope. But, 2 each his own. Godspeed Joe…Zak. Anyhow, the citizens of CA didn’t vote for 215 as the way it is now. Ur right, Tom (Dennis) & Matt shouldnt go to prison, they need help in other ways. God bless them. I just hope MY HOME DOESNT GET INVADED BECAUSE THEY THINK IM GROWING DOPE. Tell the DDD its all good. Pretty soon this county will be even worse of a war zone than it already is. Keep at it my man, keep at it. Good luck.

  11. jake says:

    Hurts when people talk shit about you huh? Yeah, I know these guys, not upstanding to say the least. Matt’s a shizo and Tom’s an asshole. Let me put my gun in my safe and I’ll post you guys later. I have to help Tom move now.

  12. Thomas says:

    These inbred hillbilly neanderthals can’t do anything. Can’t fix the internet. Can’t talk to customers (I have literally met the biggest retards in the store.) Can’t provide decent prices. Can’t provide decent education. Can’t provide intelligent politicians. Can’t DO ANYTHING! You losers need to stop breeding.

    you loser Humboldt Scum better fucking secede from the union before you make the rest of the nation look like a bunch of inbred idiots. Shoo!

  13. bmasson says:

    Great news they got these guys its a nice road and i hope it gets better now for the folks that live there.

    • Thomas says:

      Now if only they could get rid of the rest of these hillbilly retards. Seriously…… it’s disgusting. Bunch of neanderthals.

    THE HUMBOLDT COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE is as crooked as a dogs hind leg.
