Multi-Agency Operation Targets Large Illegal Marijuana Grow Operation North of Susanville

The Lassen County Sheriff's Office served three criminal search warrants related to illegal marijuana cultivation operations Wednesday, searching four legal parcels, and more than 300-acres, located off of the dirt portion of Paiute Lane, north of Susanville.

According to Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon the search warrants were obtained after extensive investigation revealed that large illegal marijuana cultivation operations were operating on the parcels.

The operation included around 45 participants from agencies which included the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Cal Fire, California Highway Patrol Air Operations, U.S. Forest Service, Lassen County Code Enforcement, Lassen County Treasurer/Tax Collector and the Lassen County District Attorney's Office.

"Upon execution of the search warrants," explains Sheriff Growdon, "personnel searched the parcels with the assistance of a helicopter from CHP Air Operations. During the extensive search of the parcels, 17 separate marijuana plot sites were located, along with multiple non-permitted structures, and make-shift shelters."

"Detectives from the Sheriff's Office meticulously examined each marijuana plot site, measuring the dimensions, counting the number of plants, and collecting evidentiary samples."

The marijuana plots consisted of 1,237 plants, and approximately 158,064 square feet of canopy space.

According to Growdon the Lassen County Treasurer/Tax Collector will impose the business cannabis tax of $.50 per square foot of canopy space utilized to cultivate marijuana. Each parcel owner will be billed for the plots located on their parcels.

Lassen County Code Enforcement also placed 'Stop Work Orders' and 'Do Not Occupy' orders on five non-permitted structures.

Growdon thanked all of the participants for their assistance, "These operations require a large number of personnel for both security, and the labor associated with eradication. These operations would not be possible without the assistance of all participating agencies."

"The Sheriff's Office will continue to investigate and eradicate these large scale criminal cultivation operations."

SusanvilleStuff Today in History
Looking out on Honey Lake in the early 1940's

Gas Prospectors Meet Barrier
September 10, 1933

Hundreds rushed to the vicinity of Honey Lake dry bed and located claims when it was reported that natural gas had been discovered there the early part of last week when Zebnoi Johnson was having a well bored for water.

It is said that men hurried here and there like in a mad gold rush to locate claims.

It was later learned that all the land had been withdrawn from entry by an order issued from the White House om March 28, 1932 headed Withdrawal of Public Lands for Military Purposes as follows.

Under authority contained in the act of June 25 1910 (26 Stat 847-838) as amended by the act of August 24 1912 (37 Stat 497) and subject to the conditions provisions and limitations of said acts it is hereby ordered that the public lands in the township hereinafter described be and the same are hereby withdrawn from settlement location sale entry and all forms of appropriation subject to all valid existing rights and held for the exclusive and benefit of the war department for military purposes.

The order was signed by President Herbert Hoover.
