(YUBA COUNTY) – A big weed bust in Dobbins.
Yuba County investigators seize 963 marijuana plants, inside three large greenhouses at the 15-acre spread on McMenamin Way. No one was there but they know who runs it and say they are looking for those people now. A flyover by a police plane led to the discovery of the marijuana…along with a trailer, makeshift shelter with a tent, solar panels, and various chemicals, which will be tested to determine their toxicity.
Officials tell reporters they suspect the grow was being operated by Mexican nationals, based on the construction of the greenhouses. These growers typically send the harvested marijuana out of state, where it is more valuable. Yuba County deputies continue to investigate.
