County of Mendocino Marijuana Enforcement Team (COMMET) Currently in Round Valley Serving Warrant on Cannabis Grow


Today, in Round Valley, the County of Mendocino Marijuana Enforcement Team (COMMET) is serving a search warrant on the valley floor “in regards to an active investigation,” as per Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Captain Greg Van Patten.

A Covelo resident told us they witnessed “six undercover trucks” and tribal officers on a property near Round Valley Transfer station on Refuse Road. The witness described officers “cutting the weed plants and tearing down the greenhouses.”

Photographs provided by the Covelo resident show a property against a hillside cluttered with old vehicles, makeshift fencing, and PVC hoop houses typically used for cannabis cultivation.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
