    Monday Aug 10 | via The Grand Junction Sentinel 

    A burglary report early Sunday prompted authorities to get search warrants as two alleged illegal large-scale marijuana grow operations were discovered inside homes in Fruitvale and on Orchard Mesa, according to court records. Youju Xiang, 47, who records suggest had been living at 559 Pearwood Court in Fruitvale without the owner's approval, was expected to be released Monday from the Mesa County Jail after signing out on a $50,000 personal-recognizance bond.
