Summary

Investigators from the Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team and Chino Hills Police Department served a search warrant at 4321 Foxrun Drive. Investigators found 157 marijuana plants growing on the property along with approximately 16 pounds of processed marijuana. Both Michael and Sheryl were present at the location when investigators served the warrant. Both were detained without incident.

 

An enforcement officer from the City of Chino Hills Code Enforcement Division is also involved with investigating several building code violations. A case will be investigated by the Code Enforcement Division and the tenants and/or property owner(s) may be issued a citation for the violations and ultimately fined for the violations if they go uncorrected.

 

The investigation is ongoing. Evidence gathered during the initial investigation suggests that they were not in compliance with California medical marijuana laws and local ordinances. The City of Chino Hills has an ordinance prohibiting marijuana cultivation within the city limits.

 

At the conclusion of the criminal investigation all suspects will be charged with Cultivation of Marijuana and the Sales of Marijuana. The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office will review the case and decide on what, if any, criminal charges will be filed against the suspects.
