Over 190 Marijuana Plants Found in Adelanto Home
ADELANTO – Over 190 marijuana plants, 100 pounds of marijuana plant material, and over four pounds of concentrated cannabis, more commonly referred to as “wax” or “dabs” was located at an Adelanto home Wednesday. At around 4:10 p.m. the Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team and deputies from the Victor Valley Station served a search warrant at a home located at, 18839 Del Mano Court in the City of Adelanto. The search was conducted as a result of a recent visit and subsequent Code Enforcement inspection warrant which lead to the discovery of the THC extraction lab and indoor marijuana cultivation.
The detectives verified the code enforcement officer’s finding, but no suspects were present or detained at the time of the search. The detectives were able to determine that the operation had been ongoing for an extended period of time, but was not discovered until recently. Nearby residents were evacuated by the San Bernardino County Fire Department personnel until the area was deemed safe to reenter approximately two hours later.
It is believed that the manufacturing of the concentrated cannabis was taking place at the home and the product was being sold to others. Authorities said that the operation was capable of producing several pounds of concentrated cannabis per week.
“The THC extraction process is extremely dangerous and has a high potential for explosion and fire due to the use of large amounts of flammable chemicals during the extraction process,” Sheriff’s officials said in the news release. “This chemical process is illegal and is a violation of California’s Health & Safety Code.” Detectives are working to identify the resident or any other suspects who may have been involved in the operation. The criminal report will be sent to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office for prosecution.
