HAYFORK – The Trinity County Sheriff’s Department and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) recently teamed up, search warrant in hand, to investigate a private piece of land for drug activity.

Sure enough, they discovered an unlicensed site growing and producing cannabis. They also discovered “environmental crimes and other criminal activity.”

455 pounds of processed marijuana, 1,540 grams of honey oil were seized. The evidence showed that the black market marijuana was being shipped across state lines.

Two unnamed suspects now face multiple potential felony charges.

The TCSD press releases declares, “CDFW reminds cannabis cultivators to obtain state licenses and local authorization for commercial cultivation. Following these recommended actions can help cultivators avoid common pitfalls that may lead to enforcement actions. Learn more at wildlife.ca.gov/cannabis.”
