Hey you guys. Let's not be so quick to judge. They're probably just compassionate caregivers serving the terminally ill. Ha ha. Medicinal, every ounce.

Thats cleaning up some more than likely illegal grows. A four inch water main that is sucking water out of the river is very large, must of been selling water to the neighbors. It would be interesting to find out how much the total costs on this bust and then what it costs us at the court house.

4" water pipe, take a walk up the eel river anywhere you find a house, hut,or tent, theres a water pipe pumping water out of the river all day everyday to water pot plant. think about how much water gets pumped from the river each day by the hundreds doing it. now where are the people yelling about protecting the fish and habitat? wheres fish and game? and what about those that scream fowl when a a truck crosses a stream? don't see how vehicles crossing a stream can hurt them when theres no water in them because the pot growers are pumping it all out.

"Last week was a culmination of what was probably months-long investigation," Sheriff Tom Allman said in a Monday telephone press conference

what does allman mean? does'nt he know how long it was? adn how are all the properties related? one illegal water diversion, but the udj leaves out important info? like how are the properties linked to each other?

Half truth at best on your second statement. NONE of the Eel should be diverted.

Do you really have to ask? Drug dealing is a crime no matter how you try to twist it.

Drug task force is made up of multiple law enforcment agencies including Probation and Parol. Ice involved because of "illegals" involved in criminal activity.

HERE'S AN IDEA: charging convicted ILLEGAL growers on private parcels $1000 per plant and if they cannot afford to pay it, they forfeit their land. This money would go directly toward irradication of ILLEGAL grows on private lands. If $2000+ per plant is incentive for growers to grow beyond their needs, then maybe a 50% penalty charge per illegal plant might be incentive for those invested in private land to modify... in addition, they must pay for the cost of all environmental damage clean up, and the jail time they do should be over hijacking water. If they are stealing water from the Eel River, they should be banned from the banks of the Eel River from Lake Pillsbury to Fortuna for the remainder of their lifetime!

The properties weren't linked. The article clearly stated that they "didn't need search warrants for open field grows that were not attached to a structure." This means that during their flyovers they spotted and irradicated grows of this sort. Basically, they conducted a sweep here and there of such grows. Many open field grows were iradicated that were not linked in any way to the Island Mountain grow.... contrary to what some say, even though a few so called medicals were taken, for the most part, they were all large commercial grows.
Good job

I would say that now we have proof of just how far reaching Sheriff Allman's invitation to drug dealers was, and it didn't stop at coast to coast. Maybe we should have Allman pay for these peoples keep out of his own paycheck and he can house them out at his property to.
