Release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

On 07-16-2012, at approximately 11:30 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Community Response Unit (C.R.U.) served a search warrant on a residence in the 6100 block of Benbow Drive, Benbow, after receiving information there was a marijuana grow in the residence. When deputies served the Humboldt County Superior Court Search Warrant they located and seized 609 growing marijuana plants ranging in height from 2’ to 3’ tall. The deputies also located scales, packaging material and paperwork indicative of sales of marijuana. No one was located in the residence, and it appeared the residence was not being lived in. It appeared it was only being used to cultivate marijuana.
The investigation into who is responsible for the residence and cultivation is ongoing.
