Raids of Mendocino County pot farms turn up 32,000 plants


Authorities in Mendocino County located more than 32,000 marijuana plants during recent raids of illegal pot farms.

The raids were a part of a broader crackdown on the increasing number of marijuana grows on tribal land in Covelo designated for Round Valley Indian Tribe members, Mendocino County Sheriff's Lt. Shannon Barney said. Many of the large-scale grows discovered by authorities have been started from people from outside the area, he added.

"It's basically a focused effort to deal with this type of operation that has really blown up in Round Valley," Barney said.
