Details:

On May 6, 2020, deputies assigned to the Lake Elsinore Station’s Problem Oriented Policing team were conducting an unrelated operation in the Alberhill Community. During the operation, deputies noticed a residence showing signs of an illegal indoor marijuana cultivation cite in the 4100 block of Ladrillo Street. The unrelated operation was completed and the following day an investigation began. It was determined the residence contained an illegal marijuana cultivation site and a search warrant was obtained.

On May 7, 2020, at the direction of Sheriff Chad Bianco, deputies served a search in the 4100 block of Ladrillo Street. As a result of the search warrant, approximately 870 marijuana plants in various stages of growth were located and collected.

In addition, the electrical system within the home was illegally altered causing a severe fire hazard. Including numerous safety concerns within the residence, additional wiring was added to the existing electrical system to steal electricity in excess of $5,000.00. The entire home was transformed using common building materials into an illegal marijuana cultivation site. Lake Elsinore Code Enforcement / Building and Safety deemed the residence uninhabitable. Southern California Edison responded and turned the power off due to the illegal wiring throughout the residence.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Meissen at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station (951) 245-3300.

As a reminder, "Community Policing" involves partnerships between law enforcement and community members. Business owners and residents are encouraged to report criminal activity directly to law enforcement by calling Sheriff’s Dispatch at (951) 776-1099, or by calling 911 if the matter is an emergency.
