Search Warrant Service – Illegal Cannabis Cultivation

This morning 5/16/19 at approximately 7:00 a.m. The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department Marijuana
Enforcement Team (METYU) with the assistance of the California Fish and Wildlife Department, served a
search warrant in the 13000 block of McMenamin Way in Dobbins, Ca at a large illegal outdoor Cannabis
grow site.
The site was previously discovered approximately one month ago during regular flyovers done by the
METYU team. Upon arrival to the property, Deputies located and eradicated 963 Marijuana plants being
illegal grown in unpermitted makeshift tarp greenhouse structures. Nobody was located at the site at the
time of the search warrant service, however a campsite and RV trailer were located at the site with
evidence of people actively living at the grow. Various unpermitted structures with plumbing and electrical
had been constructed; as well as various chemicals located and seized for analysis to determine the legality
of the products being used and to confirm what, if any, toxic elements were at the site.
The investigation into the person or persons responsible for the illegal grow remains active and
