Dinsmore Bust Alleged to Have Intimidated Neighbors with Automatic Weapons


Press Release from Humboldt CO. DA:

On Wednesday, October 26, 2011, Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office led a multi-agency effort to execute a search warrant on adjacent parcels suspected of being used for large scale marijuana cultivation. The properties were located off Highway 36 on County Line Creek Road approximately ten miles from Dinsmore.

The team was comprised of officials from the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, Eureka Police Department, California Department of Fish and Game, U.S. Marshal’s Office, Cal Fire, California  Highway Patrol as well as officials from Humboldt County Code Enforcement and Environmental Health.

Five separate parcels were searched and agents found over thirty structures used for the cultivation and processing of marijuana. Officers also discovered processed and unprocessed marijuana with an estimated street value of over one million dollars and approximately $20,000 in United States currency. Also seized were three firearms, two vehicles, numerous generators, trailers, a tractor and other equipment usually associated with large scale marijuana  cultivation.

The operation resulted in 39 arrested. Nine individuals were booked into the Humboldt County jail and six remain in custody. Of those booked, two were from Spain, one from France, one from the Ukraine, one from Australia and three from Canada. Megan Claire Moody, 30, was the only property owner present at the time of the raid and was one of the individuals taken into custody. The defendants face a variety of charges including felony cultivation and possession of marijuana for sales, and weapons violations. A large water diversion system was also located at the site. This system diverted a significant amount of water from the Mad River in support of the cultivation operations, and may result in criminal charges stemming from multiple violations of environmental laws.

“We received information regarding a possible commercial marijuana grow operation and that the people involved in that operation were shooting fully automatic weapons as a way to intimidate neighboring property owners,” said Humboldt County Chief Investigator Mike Hislop. “Commercial, non-medical grows are illegal and using firearms to intimidate people just compounds the wrong.”

  • Here, hear for Humboldt’s ‘Law’ enforcement. It’s especially these out-of-country/county, indoor electric-sucking or diesel guzzling generators, acting as gods (24 hrs. on, 24 hrs. off) of indoor lighting, profit motivated thugs that must go. And, if there are children involved…they have a horrific life being under the control of these self-centered creeps. When grandparents, aunts, uncles–relatives can’t visit/see these children, and they’re threatened to not talk to anyone while at school, sad. Of course, not all are out-of-county Persons.

    • Spot on Forest Queen 🙂

    • Fiance here: That’s one of the reasons we don’t speak to my stepdaughter….yet all your courts protect her mother.

      • Fiance,
        There are no courts, just Administration Bldgs. Administrating the US INC’S bankruptcy. The ALLEGED judges are NOT ours. They are pirates dressed in black robe dresses(Halloween). Pirates, like on any ship. IFF anyone of us is foolish enough to enter that pit of vipers, KNOW that you are leaving the land and stepping onto a ship. LOOK at the flag w/gold fringe–that tells you that you are ‘on-board,’ under contract. LOOK how the pretend courtroom is designed. THEY cannot see the light of truth, THEY are in the Matrix, the Mother of all tricks. THEY are corporations -corpse/dead, no responsibility. Hard to communicate with the dead! You/we can’t claim jurisdiction if you/we don’t know any diction. THEY can’t claim a contract, if THEY don’t have one. AND THEY DON’T!
        You are the one who must save your step-daughter, and she’s wondering why you haven’t. Your stance: “No one can tell me what to do!” It’s your decision. Don’t think for a minute that I haven’t backed down from a, get this, a 22 year old! (how pathetic is that?). That was two years ago. NO MORE! “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” (Alice Walker?).

        • It was her mother that involved the courts. It was her mother that got on welfare that even she admitted that she didn’t need. It was her mother that violated her own agreements. It was her mother that hired attorneys and it was her mother that paid through the nose to get the decisions she got. It is the child that made the decision not to speak to her father in favor of what her insane mothers wants. It was both mother and daughter that lied to everyone involved to get the decisions that were made. We were just responding to their lies and doing our best to make sure the daughter could have a good relationship with both parents. It is her mother that insists that her “friends” in SoHum are a better substitute for a father. Our hands are tied.

            • You hit that nail square on the head! I’m starting to like you almost as much as I like Suzy Blah Blah!

              • We must pick up the pace. People are awake, sitting on the edge of their beds, not STANDING yet. ‘United we stand.’ I travel to Eureka about every day to encourage the people in front of the Admin.Bldg. to ‘Occupy Together’ at HS–this is being done worldwide. I just feel that there’s no need to place themselves in possible harm’s way. I don’t even know if Eureka replaced the Chief of Police–the only one who can command the police. I offer to shuttle them. Hopefully they’ll move tomorrow.

  • The whole thing about blasting off an assault rifle, like a can of mosquito repellant gags me. Its like screaming “I am up to no good”, “I am drunk”, and “Come and get me”.

    ….Just like the South Fork of the Eel River

  • So sad. After all the work that has been done to bring back the fish from those crazy logging days…now we have growers hurting the rivers. Many of the early grower/hippies would throw money or time into stream restoration to help heal this land we love. What the heck is going on out here? How much money do you need?

    • Not Fade Away,
      How true, the farmers/growers/ hippies have souls. They are caring and nurturing, they know that we are all caretakers of Mother Earth. What’s going on? The best! California seceded from the Union over Medical Marijuana.Oct. 24th (don’t hold your breath to read of this in our Nazi (news)papers), or radio/tv. Also, Oct. 24th, The CPUC was Noticed that each one of THEM are going to be held personally accountable for Idiot Meters. And, the Mayan Elders et al started their pilgrimage (w/the 13 crystal skulls) from Manhattan on the 27th, ending in LA 11-11-11. There’s SOOOO much light of truth coming thru, it’s staggering.
      Aside, the FEDS. are proposing to shut down all media, HALELUJAH! (Not the Internet, THEY can’t). IFF this were to actually happen, the ’emergency’ sound would be broadcasting, thus a lot of us may panic. Don’t. It’s just another illusion. THEY’RE going down like a house of cards built on sand (no foundation, of truth). WOE to the attorneys and their enablers.

      • forest queen, thanks for bringing that up, I wasn’t aware of the smart meter notice. Kinda funny how this information, of important interest to millions of people, gets ZERO air time in big media / the internet.

        http://ppjg.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/demand-public-officials-end-smart-meters/

        “CPUC officials have violated their Oath of Office, endangered public health and violated federal wiretapping laws by failing to protect the public from Smart Meters. Therefore, the CPUC is vulnerable to a lawsuit. The individual Commissioners of the CPUC and Judge Wong may be held personally accountable in a lawsuit for damages caused by Smart Meters.”

        • read more abou tit, I misunderstood, thinking it was a formal notice of federal variety. Wishful thinking on my part.

          • The FEDS. have NO JURISDICTION in any of the states. The states make up the Nation, not visa versa. THIS is much, much better. California leads the way. IFF California doesn’t ‘buy it’ none of the other states do either.
            It has to do with Article III of the Constitution. And, you/me/we have to be able to transliterate exactly what is meant. Worldnewsstand.net/law/No_Justice.html from October 19, 2005. The Congressional Judicial Hoax, A California Case Study by Dr. Eduardo M. Rivera.

            • I agree 100%. It’s perfect, even, to say California has effectively seceded from the Union. Sellouts with power stand in the way of furthering the happening.

              • Random Guy,
                The ‘sellouts’ will soon be in ‘concentration camps’ as that will be the only safe place for THEM. ‘Sellouts’ do not have power. THEY have ‘Authority,’ granted by We the People. Authority is one of those AU (gold) words. Authority can be revoked at any given time. We are the 94+%. Sound the emotional notes. Don’t give up on ideology.

  • Gotta say I don’t like the ignorance many show in their water use practices for growing weed, but would it really be a problem if the rivers were not diverted upstream for things like grapes for our mostly shitty wine production. Not that diverting the mad river into a pond liner lined pit off the 36 is good but who is diverting the majority of the water, the growers or the “legal” and state accepted water diverters. Just saying ….

    • I agree that there are a lot of abusers of our rivers. But like my mom used to say, “I don’t care who’s starting it–I want to know who’s ending it.” Everyone contributes to the problem. Industrial marijuana grows just contribute a lot. Talking about the grows that are environmental problems doesn’t mean marijuana growers are bad, it is just a way of waking people up to the fact that they contribute and they can help.

  • Don’t know where else to post this on this blog…one of my daughters teaches fifth grade in Oakland, she telephoned me late this aftn., and said that the FEDS. will be in Oakland tomorrow. The teachers and children were told not to come to school. I faxed, emailed and telephoned Sacramento/Kamala Harris our Attn, General. Also emailed Alameda’s Sheriff Gregory J. Ahem. I did notice that Alameda County’s website is dot org, Humboldt’s is/county dot ca (state)dot us (fed). What would you do? Seven Northern California Sheriffs have stepped up-to-the-plate and publically said that they will defend their counties. Downey, isn’t on the list! County Sheriffs Jon Lopez/Siskiyou, Dean Wilson/Del Norte, Bruce Haney/Trinity, Tom Bosenko/Shasta, Greg Hagwood/Plumas, Dave Hencratt/Tehama and Greg Growden/Lassen.

  • I just had a thought, as I didn’t attend today’s Supes. meeting, and I don’t have high-speed Internet, perhaps there’s a chance Sheriff Downey did make a public statement? I seldom read Times Slandered. I can go to Fortuna’s Library tomorrow & watch today’s meeting. IFF I don’t see that he’s said SOMETHING, I’ll be in his office tute sweet.

  • At 1:00 a.m. this morning, Occupy Richmond was BULLDOZED!!! By 4:00 this afternoon thousands were swarming banks, by 5:00 thousands were preventing trucks from leaving Port Richmond. I’m always glad to be wrong in assessing a ‘possibility’ (with regards to FEDS. in Oakland). Sheriff Downey didn’t go to his job today. I left him a nice letter, more quoted court cases, a famous Winston Churchill quote, a Bible verse etc., etc. ending with, “Don’t call it your county/country if you will not STAND and fight for it.”
