2021 On June 24, at about 12 o’clock. At 00 a.m., San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Drug Enforcement Officers, with the help of members of the Fallbrook Crime Control Enforcement Detachment (SED) team, searched search warrants at CA-79 38000 in Warner Springs.
The order was part of an investigation by Sheriff’s Detectives into the illicit trafficking of marijuana in the San Diego area. Detectives confiscated 427 live marijuana plants at Warner Springs, valued at approximately $ 500,000. In addition, seven firearms were confiscated – approximately $ 10,000 US currency.
Today’s action was supported by the application of the San Diego County Code, California Water Council investigators San Diego Gas & Electric. They have uncovered a number of violations, creating a dangerous situation, as well as environmental crimes committed due to illegal cultivation of property. It is rare for investigators to find hazardous chemicals, illegal pesticides or other hazardous substances used in unlicensed marijuana growing sites. These hazardous substances can enter local groundwater և streams, creating hazards for the environment.
Such marijuana breeding grounds are often a source of safe food for human consumption, which are sold in illegal outpatient clinics in our communities. Investigators believe the marijuana at Warner Springs was planted in illegal cauldron shops in Southern California.
The verdict addresses community concerns about marijuana trafficking in schools and residential areas. We want to make sure that the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office serves those who listen to the community and are aware of the negative impact that illegal marijuana practices have had on our neighborhoods.
