Fourteen people busted for allegedly operating a marijuana grow containing more than 300 plants at a Jurupa Valley residence were behind bars today.
The suspected pot farm, located on a multi-acre property in the 4900 block of Hunter Street, was raided by Riverside County sheriff’s investigators about 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.
According to Sgt. Justin Rowan, the sheriff’s department had been tipped off to the illegal cultivation operation earlier this month and initiated an
investigation, collecting sufficient evidence to obtain a search warrant.
The street value of the cannabis seized at the property — including 45 pounds of processed weed — was in excess of $700,000, Rowan said.
