SANTA ROSA, California — Four out-of-state residents are suspected of cultivating and possessing pot for sale in a rural area of Mendocino County after investigators found 800 marijuana plants and a hash oil lab.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1KCH8zw) the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office and state wildlife officers served seven search warrants last week and discovered the operation as well as illegal alterations that threatened to empty streams and confine juvenile steelhead trout.
Deputies arrested a 25-year-old Missouri man, 26-year-old Kansas man, 25-year-old Oklahoma man, and 30-year-old Nebraska man. All four also face a charge of manufacturing a controlled substance.
It's unclear whether the men have lawyers.
