Over 1000 Marijuana Plants Seized in Petaluma

PETALUMA – According to a Petaluma Police Department press release issued Thursday, November 20, officers from the Sonoma County Drug Enforcement Agency Task Force executed a search warrant at a commercial property in the 1000 block of Clegg Court on the east side of Petaluma.

Over one thousand marijuana plants were seized, the majority of which were mature plants and capable of producing close to 1 ½ tons of processed marijuana per year. The estimated annual street value is about $4 million.

No arrests have been made as no suspects were found on the scene at the time the warrant was executed. The Task Force noted several building code violations at the property that were severe enough to deem the property unsafe to occupy.

Clegg Court is just off Clegg Street, one of many side roads fed by North McDowell Boulevard in what is primarily a commercialized area. The building is within close proximity of many well known and established businesses and organizations including a deli café, a health center, a glass company, a Christian fellowship, and a precision tool company to categorize but a few.

In another drug related arrest, on Tuesday, November 18, Jason D. Stephens of Petaluma was arrested just a few blocks from his home. He was picked up at Safeway Market on South McDowell Street on misdemeanor burglary and shoplifting. The charge is a misdemeanor since the amount was under $950.00. However, he was also in possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia, along with a probation violation. Stephens has been a “frequent customer” of the Petaluma Police with arrests in January, twice in September, and once just a week ago; all on charges of possession of controlled substances and paraphernalia, probation violations, and a resisting arrest charge on September 30.
