In August of 2020, deputies from the Perris Station Special Enforcement Team learned of numerous illegal outdoor residential marijuana grows. Riverside County Sheriff’s Department deputies served search warrants at various residences and located a total of 1,046 marijuana plants in various stages of growth and 383 pounds of processed marijuana. All the marijuana plants were subsequently eradicated from the properties. Jose Cervantes, age 31 of Sacramento, was arrested and booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for cultivation of marijuana.

The goal of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is to keep our citizens safe while also improving the quality of life for those residing within the community. Outdoor marijuana cultivation negatively impacts the neighborhoods, property value and environment. It diminishes and poisons the water table and pesticides adversely affect 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.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Hardie or Deputy Pendleton at the Perris Station by calling 951-210-1000.

For media inquiries regarding this incident please contact the Media Information Bureau.
