Details:

On May 26, 2021, personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Moreno Valley Station Problem Oriented Policing Team, served a search warrant related to marijuana cultivation, in the 26000 block of Santa Rosa Drive, Moreno Valley. Deputies had previously received information of a possible marijuana grow house at the location from a concerned citizen in the neighborhood. Further investigation led to the authoring and execution of a search warrant for the residence. During service of the search warrant, 959 plants in various stages of growth were collected from the residence. Deputies also discovered the interior of the home had been altered and converted into a cultivation home with no usable living space left. In addition, deputies located an illegal electrical bypass, a watering system, chemicals, and lighting associated with the cultivation of marijuana. The residence is in a densely populated neighborhood with occupied homes surrounding it, creating an extremely dangerous environment for the citizens. At the conclusion of the search warrant service, a Southern California Edison (SCE) technician responded and confirmed the illegal electrical bypass. SCE assisted in interrupting electrical service to the location to avoid the potential of an electrical fire. The following suspects were at the location and were booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center for illegal Marijuana Cultivation, Theft of Utilities, and Conspiracy.
