Two Grows, No Arrests: 4,700 Marijuana Plants Uprooted

Russ Ranch Property Raided in Rio Dell, HCSO Says

 

Staff Report
Humboldt Sentinel

 

On a high-flying roll, the Sheriff’s Department took out two grows comprising 4,761 plants earlier this week.

The vast majority of those plants were found on ranch property high in the hills above Rio Dell, and despite the overwhelming number, Sheriff’s Officers were skunked locating the cannabis cultivating culprits responsible and making arrests.

On Monday, September 10, at approximately 11:00 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Cannabis Eradication and Reclamation Team ( C.E.R.T.), formerly known as the Campaign Against Marijuana Planting, in locating and removing a marijuana garden off of US Forest Service Route 1.

The marijuana garden contained 229 growing marijuana plants that were being grown on US Forest Service Property.  The plants were approximately four-feet tall.  There were no arrests and the investigation into the case is continuing.

On Tuesday, September 11, at approximately 10:00 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies were again assisted by the C.E.R.T. team locating and removing 4,532 marijuana plants located on the Russ Ranch Property off of Monument Road in Rio Dell.

Those plants ranged from one to four-feet in height.  Again there were no arrests, but the investigation into the suspect(s) is also continuing, the HCSO reported.

As the usual small print states: the HCSO kindly asks that anyone with information for the Sheriffs Office regarding this case– or related criminal activity– to please call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
