Calaveras County sheriff’s deputies seized 1,450 marijuana plants from a property in Jenny Lind that had generated complaints from residents, authorities said.
The sheriff’s department and county code enforcement served a search warrant Monday in the 9900 block of Shalimar Drive and discovered the marijuana grow was unregistered and illegal.
Residents had complained about unpermitted grading and fence building at the site. Deputies suspect the growers were stealing water from a neighbor. No arrests were made, but law enforcement is trying to learn the identities of the growers.
A special enforcement team in Calaveras County is asking residents to report marijuana grows that are not registered. Call (209) 754-6870.
