ADELANTO, Ca. – An indoor marijuana cultivation with over 644 marijuana plants was located in the City of Adelanto.
At around 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 31, 2019, at around 10:00 a.m., investigators responded with a search warrant in the 14300 block of Greta Drive. The location had an indoor marijuana grow that used advanced lighting, air conditioning, fans, exhaust blowers, and an air filtering system. Investigators discovered an electric sub-panel that had been installed inside the home, which overloaded the electric lines to power all of the equipment. Sheriff’s officials said that all of the equipment, used to conceal the marijuana cultivation could have caused a fire, endangering those living in neighboring homes.
“The suspect(s) responsible for the location did not obtain a business license from the city of Adelanto, nor did they have a license from the State of California to cultivate cannabis,” San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said. “Personnel from the Adelanto Code Enforcement Division will begin their own investigation. The electrical power was disconnected by Southern California Edison and the residence will be “red tagged” as unsafe to occupy.” According to the laws in the State of California, up to six marijuana plants can be grown per parcel of land. Any more than six plants in a residential area, would be illegal and can not obtain a state license
