On the evening of October 31, 2019, a family took their children trick-or-treating along the 2900 Block of Crooked Branch Way, San Jacinto. Upon approaching a residence, the parent discovered the front door to the residence open with marijuana growing inside. 

Deputies from the San Jacinto station arrived and conducted an interior search of the unoccupied residence.  The interior of the residence was heavily modified for the illicit cultivation of marijuana.  Deputies authored and served a search warrant at the location and seized 759 marijuana plants in various stages of growth. 

An electrical bypass was located inside the garage, necessitating deputies in contacting Southern California Edison to assist in the investigation.  San Jacinto Code Enforcement unsafe and unhabitual and red-tagged the home.  A dog at the location was turned over to the Ramona Humane Society for safekeeping. 

Deputies confiscated all contraband located on the property, but no arrests have were made. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call Deputy Graham at Riverside County Sheriff’s dispatch at (951) 776-1099, or the San Jacinto Sheriff Station at (951) 791-3400.

The goal of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is to keep all of our citizens safe while also improving the quality of life for those residing within the community.  Marijuana cultivation negatively impacts the environment in many ways including diminishing and poisoning the water table and pesticides adversely affecting the health of neighboring residents.  The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has a zero-tolerance policy for these offenses.  If you suspect drug activity in your area, please contact your local Sheriff’s Station.  The Hemet Sheriff’s Station can be reached at (951) 791-3400 and the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station can be reached at (951) 766-2400.
