Trim said that investigators discovered the Elk Grove house, which led police to finding further growing operations. Search warrants were served at 11 houses in Elk Grove, Davis, Arden-Arcade, and Sacramento’s Meadowview, Pocket, and Midtown neighborhoods. Investigators also found more than $62,000 in cash during their operation.
