CDFW Helps Riverside County Sheriff with Illegal Marijuana Cultivation Search Warrants

RIVERSIDE COUNTY - On April 14, 2021, personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife served eight marijuana cultivation- related search warrants at eight separate residences/properties in the unincorporated area of Anza.

During the service of the search warrants, law enforcement officers eradicated approximately 19,916 marijuana plants and collected 1,015 pounds of processed marijuana for a total combined weight of more than two tons. Three firearms (two rifles and one handgun) were also collected for evidence.

“These operations targeting illegal marijuana cultivation are designed to improve the quality of life for communities, including public safety and environmental health,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “In addition, it assists legal operations by containing the market to those who have the proper permits and licenses.”

No subjects were located at the properties during the service of the search warrants. Follow up investigation is being conducted to identify the subjects responsible for the illegal marijuana cultivation.
