On May 19, 2021, deputies with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET) served one search warrant to investigate illegal cannabis cultivation in the Myers Flat area. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services Environmental Health – HazMat Unit, Humboldt County Code Enforcement and the California State Water Resources Control Board assisted in the service of the warrant.

One parcel was investigated during the service of the warrant. The parcel did not possess the required county permit and state license to cultivate cannabis commercially.

During the service of the warrant, deputies located approximately 29 greenhouses with growing cannabis plants inside. Deputies eradicated approximately 7,934 growing cannabis plants. Deputies seized and destroyed approximately 12 pounds of cannabis bud and over 600 pounds of cannabis shake. Deputies also located and seized four firearms, one of which had been reported stolen. Six individuals were detained and later released on scene.

No arrests were made during the service of the warrant. The case will be forwarded to the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office for review

Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.

They are not dead it’s how they have grown (really just feed) the plant since ’96. This is the type of grows that replaced us long ago. People smoke that shit, lol, nasty!!!

If you look closely, the leaves still exhibit turgor(sic?), they are still alive. Some kind of new, to me, growing strategy . pump ‘em with “P” for flowering. Sure, we knew all that, but this is weird.

Man, it sure would suck to be the first guy arrested after covid is “officially” over. You’d be like “what your taking me to jail? I only had 5,000lbs, a tank and a rocket launcher, what happen to just giving me a ticket!?”

It would have been just a ticket but he had no mask on, hence jail was warranted.

Oh my goodness, who would blow up a scene on the Main road , a paved road, in a open area, for all the cops to see? It’s really beyond me the stupidity. The arrogance amongst the men, not to put men down but you see these things going on in these reports of who was busted and it’s normally men, it leads me to think it’s very unhappy men. Men that think money and power makes them happy. Forget about a dump run, just looking for some money in their pocket. And then the stupid things they buy with their money. To look cool amongst others. And lots of them are delinquent on their child support. They have no desire to share just greedy delinquent on their taxes, don’t know how to wash the dishes and do a dump run, shame, shame, And think their little toys are going to make them happy and when they don’t they turn to drinking and drugs cigarettes and junk food. Oh my my aren’t we cool? Trash the environment leaving an eyesore for everyone else to look at. And oh yes I forgot , look at my big truck! I know you… Read more »

They can count 7,934 plants but have to approximate the number of hoop houses, lol. Bet they count money the same way always round numbers to the thousand, lol.

The HCSO doesn’t count money that way, they like tax free money for new cars, boats and toys too.

I’m sure this just didn’t pop up this year. It’s probably been going on for many years and they just kept adding to it. It was so obvious no one would suspect they weren’t licensed. I do believe there are a lot of big boys still pulling it off
