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.

GO AWAY 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.
