BURSON – Two illegal grow houses were busted last Monday. Investigation connected both houses “to the same criminal organization as 12 other previously eradicated locations in the area.”
The first was a large house on Hillvale Lane. Almost the entire structure was converted into a grow house. 919 marijuana plants were destroyed but no one was on site.
The second house was on the 2000 block of Huckleberry Lane in Valley Springs. At that residence 42-year-old Yuanqiang Feng was arrested for illegal marijuana cultivation (11358c) and maintaining a drug house (11366). In this house 228 plants were destroyed.
“The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with information on potentially illegal marijuana cultivation sites or sites manufacturing concentrated cannabis to call the Sheriff’s Marijuana Tip Line at (209) 754-6870.”
