8 Illegal Marijuana Grow Sites Eradicated in 1 Week

From the dates of July 30, 2019 through August 1, 2019, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Unit served 8 search warrants which resulted in the seizure of over 3,000 marijuana plants and the arrests of 5 people.

On July 30, 2019 the Calaveras Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Unit served search warrants for illegal marijuana cultivation on 2 addresses on Meredith Lane in Railroad Flat.
The first site was located in the 1500 block of Meredith Lane. Deputies located several “hoop house” structures containing 1,365 growing marijuana plants along with processed marijuana. Due to the fact that no residents were located, Animal Services was contacted and took 10 dogs into custody for safe keeping and care. The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office is working closely with allied agencies regarding the discovery of environmental crimes associated with the cultivation site. Evidence seized from the scene is still being examined and the investigation is ongoing.
The second marijuana cultivation site eradicated on July 30th was located in the 1400 block of Meredith Lane where 99 marijuana plants were seized. No suspects were at the location at the time of this warrant; however, evidence seized from the scene is still being examined and the investigation is ongoing.

On July 31st, 2019, Deputies served search warrants on 3 addresses on Old Road in West Point for illegal marijuana cultivation.
The first was located in the 800 block of Old Road, West Point. Deputies located 109 growing marijuana plants which were being cultivated outdoors. No arrests were made at the time of this warrant, however, the investigation is ongoing.

The second location was in the 900 block of Old Road, West Point. Deputies located an outdoor growing operation and seized 517 growing marijuana plants, 152 pounds of processed marijuana, 2.76 pounds of marijuana concentrate (Butane Honey Oil), and 1 Firearm. 1 suspect was located and placed under arrest by the Calaveras Sheriff’s Deputies.
Isis Alexandra Pierce, age 36 of West Point, was arrested for 11358 H&S Illegal Marijuana Cultivation, 11359 H&S Possession of Marijuana for Sale, 11366 H&S Maintaining a Drug House, 11366.5 (A) H&S Rent or Lease a Drug House, and 182 (A) (1) PC Conspiracy to Commit Crime.

The third location eradicated on July 31st was located in the 1000 block of Old Road, West Point. Upon service of the search warrant, deputies located and seized 305 growing marijuana plants and 73.19 pounds of processed marijuana. 2 suspects were located on the site and placed under arrest by Calaveras Sheriff’s Deputies.
Nuedoua Steve Her, age 61 of Stockton, was arrested for 11358(C) H&S Illegal Marijuana Cultivation in Excess of 6 Plants, 11366 H&S Maintaining a Drug House, and 182 (A)(1) PC Conspiracy to Commit Crime.
Shoua Yang, age 40 of West Point and Stockton, was arrested for 11358(C) H&S Illegal Marijuana Cultivation in Excess of 6 Plants, 11366 H&S Maintaining a Drug House, and 182 (A)(1) PC Conspiracy to Commit Crime.

On August 1st, 2019, search warrants were served at 3 locations on Del Sol Lane, San Andreas.
The first location was on the 5700 block of Del Sol Ln. Deputies located and seized 4.32 pounds of processed marijuana during the search of a residence which had been converted for the purpose of indoor marijuana cultivation. No suspects were at the location at the time of this warrant; however, evidence seized from the scene is still being examined and the investigation is ongoing.

The second search warrant was served nearby on a parcel. Deputies located 614 growing marijuana plants, 113.28 pounds of processed marijuana. No suspects were at the location at the time of this warrant; however, evidence seized from the scene is still being examined and the investigation is ongoing.

The third location eradicated on August 1st, was located in the 5500 block of Del Sol Ln. Deputies located 116 growing marijuana plants. 2 suspects were contacted at the site and placed under arrest.
Hung Sang Dinh, age 49 of Elk Grove and Cuong Shi Vuong, age 51 of Sacramento were booked into the Calaveras County Jail for 11358 H&S Illegal Marijuana Cultivation, 11359 H&S Possession of Marijuana for Sale, 11366 H&S Maintaining a Drug House, 182 PC Conspiracy to Commit Crime.

These marijuana growing operations were indicative of illegal commercial activity and were not in compliance with any medical or recreational cultivation.

It should be noted that the Marijuana Enforcement Team serves numerous search warrants monthly. During these search warrants, evidence is collected which is used to further the case and overall investigation. The mere fact that no persons were contacted or arrested at some of the locations does not imply that the case is complete. For weeks and/or months following a warrant, the investigation into each site continues. In some cases, charges are referred to the District Attorney at a later date pending the results of evidence testing, interviews, or follow up investigations.

The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with information on illegal marijuana cultivation sites or sites manufacturing concentrated cannabis to call the Sheriff’s Marijuana Tip Line at (209) 754-6870.

DATE : August 1, 2019

TYPE OF INCIDENT : Attempted suicide by firearm

DETAILS :

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigation a shooting incident, believed to be a suicide attempt. Last night just after 10, an Amador County Deputy was conducting a routine business check of Harrah’s Northern California Casino. As the deputy was driving through the parking lot area of the casino, she noticed a male subject seated in a lawn chair next to a grey Jeep. As the deputy was driving towards the Jeep, she heard a single gunshot and observed the male fall out of the chair onto the ground.

The deputy did not observe any other individuals in or around the area nor did she observe anyone fleeing the area. The deputy called for additional units and approached the male. As she approached the male he was reaching for a .38 caliber revolver and stated, “Just shoot me.”

The deputy along with security personnel from the casino began giving first aid to the male. Medics with American Legion Ambulance responded and relieved personnel on-scene. The male, identified as a Sacramento resident, was flown to Kaiser South Sacramento.

The investigation is on-going with the cooperation of Harrah’s Northern California.
