Another illicit drug operation was taken down in Arcata’s newer Windsong housing development this morning.

Acting on an anonymous tip, Arcata Police Department personnel served the search warrant Thursday at a home on the 2300 block of Sherri Court. They found a sophisticated marijuana growing operation consisting of over 150 growing cannabis plants underneath twelve 1000-watt lights; the home was consuming nearly 5000 kilowatt hours per month, nearly 1000% above the average California home, according to a statement by APD sergeant Todd Dokweiler.

Arrested at the scene was Jennifer Marie Upton, 21, on charges of marijuana cultivation and possession for sale. She was transported and booked at the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.

As usual, City building inspectors found fault with the grow operation’s wiring, and they called in the power company to disconnect electricity to the home. Investigators from the Arcata Fire Protection District also came out to look for potential fire hazards.
