Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office:
On Monday, at approximately 10 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff's Deputies served a Humboldt County Superior Court Search Warrant at the end of Burr Valley Road, Dinsmore.
Deputies located five greenhouses and four outdoor marijuana gardens on the parcel containing 1773 growing marijuana plants. The plants ranged in size from 3' to 5' tall. The deputies estimated the marijuana garden could have yielded one pound of marijuana bud per plant or more. The estimated yield of the marijuana plants would have been approximately $1,773,000 based upon an estimated wholesale value of Humboldt County Marijuana Bud selling at approximately $1000 per pound.
No one was on scene when the deputies arrived and the investigation is continuing to determine who is responsible for the marijuana.
