MERCED COUNTY, Calif. (FOX26) — A major Merced County pot grow has been destroyed.
The Merced County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff’s Enforcement Team (SET) served search warrants at a property with some barns and a large cornfield Saturday and found a massive pot grow.
They were investigating the illegal cultivation, manufacturing, and processing of marijuana.
While searching the property, the SET Team questioned 15 people who were found to be cultivating and processing large amounts of marijuana inside the two barns and in the cornfield.
The haul included nearly 35,000 marijuana plants, a large supply of dried weed, and two handguns — one of them stolen.
Together it totaled to more than seven tons of marijuana worth up to $15 million in profit on the streets.
The SET Team is working with the California Department of Food and Agriculture, County of Merced Code Enforcement, and CDFA Cal Cannabis Investigations Team (CDFA) to prosecute the owner of the property.
Merced County Sheriff Vernon Warnke reminds everyone that it is illegal to grow marijuana outdoors in Merced County.
You may legally possess six marijuana plants per residence and may only grow indoors.
