Details:

In the beginning of July, deputies assigned to the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Stations Problem Oriented Policing Team received information regarding a possible illegal marijuana cultivation occurring within the City of Lake Elsinore, in the area known as Rosetta Canyon.

On July 10, 2020, at the direction of Sheriff Chad Bianco, deputies served a search warrant in the 41000 block of Marquise Street.  The entire residence was transformed using common building materials into a marijuana cultivation site.  The electrical system within the residence had been illegally altered causing a severe fire hazard.  Southern California Edison Company responded to the residence and turned the power off due to the illegal wiring.  Approximately 655 marijuana plants in various stages of growth were located during the search warrant.

This is an ongoing investigation.  Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Carlson 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.
