They got pot

Sheriff’s unit finds more marijuana gardens

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office Special Enforcement Unit continued its efforts to weed illegal marijuana gardens out of the county with search-warrant busts on July 25 in Oroville and Berry Creek.

The first was on Chinese Wall Road, where deputies located 510 plants, a butane honey oil lab, an unregistered handgun and two rifles. Michael Tran of El Cajon and Damien Grall of Orange were each arrested on charges of cultivation of marijuana and possession for sale, and being armed in the commission of a felony. Grall was also charged with manufacturing a controlled substance.

The unit then went to Galen Ridge Road in Berry Creek, where deputies found 241 plants and arrested Jody Cook and Angelia Davey, both of Fortuna. Neither reportedly had a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana; each was charged with cultivation and possession for sale.
