Tulare County – The town of Lindsay is lighter about 2,500 marijuana plants today thanks to a big bust by detectives of the Tulare Area Gang and Narcotics Enforcement Team.
TAGNET worked with the Majors Marijuana Investigation Team and Narcotics Unit and the Code Enforcement Unit of the Resource Management Agency to fulfill a warrant regarding an illegal marijuana cultivation operation spread throughout several residences in Lindsay.
One man, 55-year old Robert Edwards, has been arrested for his involvement. At the time of his arrest Edwards was on bail for an unrelated case in which he had been in possession of six rifles and two handguns, as well as under the influence of a controlled substance. 19 grams of methamphetamine and a soft body armor were also confiscated.
Edwards is charged with illegally growing marijuana, possession of meth, possession of meth for sale, maintaining a home for the purpose of drug use, possession of firearms while under the influence of a controlled substance, and committing a felony while on bail.
He was booked into the Adult Pre-Trial Facility on 06/25/2019 and bonded out on 06/27/2019.
