Police Raid Massive Marijuana Grow in Santa Cruz Mountains

Thursday morning Santa Clara police raided a 7-acre marijuana grow in the Santa Cruz mountains, seizing more than a million dollars worth of weed.

Santa Clara Sheriff’s deputies said that neighbors of the grow alerted them to its existence. While the five suspects arrested and property owner claim the grow is entirely for medicinal purposes and valid under state MMJ laws, the deputies unwaveringly say the grow is illegal.

Garret Hand, friend of those arrested, was on the scene when police came.
