    • 3rd Degree Dabs

      To think about what they drove past to get to the little guys. Hell, lit greenhouses on the road.

  • Nothing but racial profiling. Really? They just decided to go for 260 plants, seems like one of the cops has some hatred towards african Americans.

  • It’s not that. they were in the wrong area. little golden gate has people who have been there for decades .all locals except those guys ,but sorry no racism just the facts .they were the only black guys around . In a all white neighborhood. I’m sure they are happy they got busted ,and out of the neighborhood.

      It’s sort of like that. Being black didn’t help them thats for sure. I know the neighborhood well. I know eyebrows were raised when some black folk moved in. Strike 1. Then throwing up a grow, strike 2. Being black in LG with a grow strike 3. They’ve run out white growers as well. Remember the guy with the super stupid lifted truck? Whatever happened to that idiot??
      I said it on another post, you can’t have chickens in LG, so don’t think you can have a grow either.

  • veterans friend

    money, drugs & guns.
    sounds like they had a nice scene going though. Bummer

  • Seems like a waste of public resources…go for the trespass grows FIRST since you have to prioritize with limited resources…I am going to assume there is a back story that we are not privy too.

  • sounds like they dumped a butt load of that Alabama cash into humboldt economy and was getting close to cashing out on their first Dep. but it was a no go. it was probably karma.
