[CA] Major marijuana bust in Fresno County

Major marijuana bust in Fresno County
September 22, 2011 - KFSN-TV



FRESNO, Calif. -- The Fresno County Sheriff's Department uncovered a major marijuana garden, early Thursday morning, just south of the Fresno city limits.

The pot bust happened at Valentine and Central Avenues. According to investigators, more than 3,000 pot plants were found in the field.

Fresno County Sheriff's Deputies and the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) raided the field just before 6 a.m. Thursday morning. They removed all of the plants and were questioning more than 30 people who were living on the property.

Neighbors have been concerned about a guard tower in the field where they saw armed guards.

This raid is similar to another one near Sanger two months ago. Federal agents obtained warrants to seize marijuana at both fields because even though the growers have medical marijuana cards, growing marijuana is against federal law.

In the Sanger raid, the U.S. Attorney's Office did not file any criminal charges. Investigators say they will check to see if any of the pot was going out of state before pursuing charges.

The line following it somewhat slightly partially helps... If they really were dealing it and all, then idk it might be a different story depending... But yeah in general come on, fuck off guys (DEA).

thats sad i was born in Fresno and lived there for quite a while. I cant beleive that they would go through all that trouble and taxpayers money to bust a stupid pot farm when theres methlabs all over the place out in the rural cities. I can name a few seriously.

I'd say it was a tad more then just selling. Not that I agree they should've been seized, but it's actually very reasonable compared to many raids I've heard of.
