IMG_2014Press release provided by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

On Wednesday, July 29, 2015, the Humboldt County Drug Task Force, assisted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife Services, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and The California State Water Board served a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant at a parcel of property located in the 31000 block of Highway 299 in Willow Creek. When officers arrived at the property, no subjects were located.

During a search of the property, officers located 1481 growing marijuana plants that ranged from 2 feet to 8 feet in height.

Numerous environmental concerns and violations were discovered and are being investigated by the appropriate agencies.

This watershed was identified as a watershed of concern for the taskforce due to the high natural resource value of the watershed and the intensity of cultivation activities in the area;

The taskforce is inspecting private parcels with cannabis cultivation to evaluate site conditions, water use and storage features, and potential threats to water quality.

This case is still under investigation and suspects have been identified. Arrests are anticipated in the near future.

Anyone with information for the Humboldt County Drug Task Force Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Drug Task Force Office at 707-444-8095.







  • These flats are all excavated… inviting erosion… The dep has been harvested…

  • Save some water for the fish guys!

  • Roll on November 2016. Bring on legalisation .

  • The environmental damage here is astounding! Fyi: I don’t drink water and I wipe my ass with dead leaves

    • we should also all take it one step further and quit breathing, to help combat co2 build up.
      that’s another one for the environmentalists, I wonder how much co2 a pot plant scrubs? as opposed to how much is expelled into the atmosphere from the eradication effort.

  • People that do grows like this or think it’s o.k. are greedy Republican businessmen in hipster drag.
    Most often they are newbies from somewhere else moved here solely to get rich growing reefer.
    Their idea of “living off the land” is sucking it dry and trashing it, their biggest contribution to the community is to the local grower’s supply.
    These greedy, selfish, over-the-top growers? Bust ’em.

  • lets hope the fires burn down many of these scenes
