TAFT — Two men and a woman are behind bars after deputies busted up their illegal Taft pot farm last Thursday.
Cisco George, 18, was booked into the Taft Jail for manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of concentrated cannabis, while 37-year-old Larry Mangrobang was booked for possession of narcotics paraphernalia and having an active misdemeanor arrest warrant. Diana Garcia, 27, was also booked on three active misdemeanor arrest warrants.
According to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, deputies following up on an anonymous tip conducted a search at a residence in the 600 block of Tyler Street in Taft on Thursday, November 5, to confirm that the residents were in compliance with the number of marijuana plants per parcel that is allowed by the County of Kern.
While searching the residence, deputies said they discovered that Mangrobang was on active parole and had an active warrant for his arrest.
During a subsequent parole search of the residence, deputies said they also found evidence of a butane honey oil lab, along with several other items of contraband, including marijuana and glass smoking pipes.
