Cannabis Enforcement in Clearlake Nets Plants, Pounds, and Guns

The following is a press release issued by the Clearlake Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

In the last week, the Clearlake Police Department served five search warrants at properties within the City of Clearlake involving illegal marijuana growing operations. Approximately three thousand six hundred and fifty (3,650) marijuana plants and just over one thousand (1,000) pounds of processed marijuana were seized from the five locations. Additionally, twelve (12) illegally owned firearms and approximately six thousand four hundred and fifty (6,450) rounds of ammunition were seized from four of the locations.

The marijuana plants at the properties were mostly outdoors, but several had marijuana growing inside the residences. None of the properties had licenses allowing the cultivation of marijuana.

Four people were arrested and booked into the Lake County Jail for charges related to illegal marijuana operations and firearms.

The Clearlake Police Department will continue to actively investigate illegal commercial growing operations in the City of Clearlake.

  1. Yet the cartels hold our national forests hostage to grow tons of pot guarded with automatic weapons. Cooking meth and human trafficing Its kinda legal but not legal. This is pathetic wake up america! Time to throw the bums out

  2. Yes you can clearly see Marijuana is harmless.(yeah right) I’m so sick of these hippies that say that weed is harmless.

    • When you look at all the car accidents and drunk and disorderly arrests in Lake and Mendocino counties, it becomes clear what drug is causing the most harm…Alcohol ! I’m so sick of repeat drunk drivers and innocent lives they take on the roadways! The Hippies are not the problem in the cannabis industry it’s the criminals and the mismanagement by the counties of a very lucrative business !

    • Qwerty,
      Got extreme & conflated presumption much?

      When a drunk plows into a family do you blame the car?
      Or the alcohol?

      It’s the drinker who drove and thus gets locked up.

      Let’s just ban cars and alcohol…that’ll solve all the problems and keep your little simpleton snowflake *ss frozen.
