Members of the Jurupa Valley Station’s Special Enforcement Teams (SET) representing the cities of Eastvale and Jurupa Valley have been aggressively targeting illegal indoor marijuana grows throughout the cities of Eastvale and Jurupa Valley in 2020.
Deputies assigned to the SET team received complaints from residents of the city of Eastvale regarding possible illegal indoor marijuana cultivations. The Eastvale SET deputies investigated and determined that properties located in the 6800 block of Highland Dr., and the 6700 block of Leanne St., city of Eastvale, had been converted to support illegal indoor marijuana cultivation and there was evidence that marijuana plants were being cultivated on the properties.
On October 16, 2020, at 9:00 AM, members from the Jurupa Valley station’s SET team served two marijuana cultivation related search warrants on the properties located at the above addresses within the city of Eastvale. During the service of the search warrants, deputies recovered approximately 2600 marijuana plants and several pounds of processed marijuana from the locations.
Eastvale Code Enforcement and Southern California Edison responded to the location’s and they conducted their own separate investigations into various building and safety code violations.
