The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Marijuana Enforcement Team conducted investigations resulting in the service of three search warrants at residential properties in the unincorporated community of Lucerne Valley. The locations had outdoor marijuana grows on the properties. The investigations revealed all the marijuana grows were illegal and not in compliance with California’s medical marijuana law and/or San Bernardino County’s ordinance prohibiting Commercial Cannabis Activity.

Thus, over 1,900 marijuana plants were seized during the service of the search warrants. At this time, investigators don’t believe the locations are linked together.

At Location #1, Investigators arrested three suspects for Cultivation of Marijuana.

At Location #2, Investigators arrested and cite released one suspect for violating the County’s Commercial Cannabis Activity ordinance.

At Location #3, Investigators arrested three suspects for Cultivation of Marijuana and Sales of Marijuana. One suspect, Quan Ngo, will also be charged with Resisting Arrest and Parole Violation. Ngo fled from the location but was apprehended by deputies after a foot pursuit.

The County of San Bernardino has an ordinance prohibiting Commercial Cannabis Activity which includes growing marijuana outdoors. San Bernardino County Code Enforcement personnel will assist in the notifications to the owners of the properties to make them aware of the violations occurring on them.

The Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division will continue to enforce California’s medical marijuana law as well as the San Bernardino County ordinanc e regarding marijuana cultivation and distribution. Persons found to be violating the state marijuana law and county ordinance are subject to fines, prosecution, and seizure of property. Property owners who are aware their tenants are growing marijuana on their rental properties in violation of state law and local ordinances may also be subject to civil or criminal sanctions.
