Stolen Assault Weapons and 5,000 Plants Found in Early Morning Round Valley Raid


In the early morning of August 5, 2020, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office conducted a raid on a marijuana growing operation in Round Valley, California. According to Sheriff Matt Kendall, several stolen assault weapons were confiscated, roughly 5,000 marijuana plants were eradicated, and ten individuals were interviewed at the scene.

A helicopter involved in today’s Round Valley marijuana raid submitted by Round Valley resident who asked to go unnamed.

The grow was located near the west end of the Round Valley Airport runway abutting the headwaters of Town Creek.

Sheriff Kendall said the raid was a continuation of MCSO’s efforts to rid Covelo of illegal marijuana. Ultimately, Sheriff Kendall said the aim of the raids is to demonstrate that it is “too expensive” to grow illegally in Round Valley.
