This is the story of Lester "Smitty" Smith, 89, and his wife Mary, 79, of Philo and last Wednesday's marijuana raid on their home and the homes of their 2 granddaughters, their husbands and children. The adult grandchildren, Yolanda and Carla Mayberry, 31 and 29, and their husbands were hauled away by sheriff's deputies; CPA took all five kids.
There was apparently a neighbor's smell complaint that drew deputies to the Philo residence of the elderly couple who grew their own modest garden of 17 marijuana plants for medical use under their doctor's approval. Their granddaughters and husbands were growing a total of 74 plants for 3 people on an adjoining parcel, a combined total of 91 plants. They were in compliance with local guidelines of 25 plants per person (Measure G), which was the law in place when they planted their gardens in the spring before the June election.
Deputies illegally used Mendocino County civil nuisance ordinance 9.31 -- the 25 plants per parcel law -- to justify confiscating all their plants, leaving none as medicine for ill people. They explained that all three families exceeded the 25 plants per parcel limit, so they were taking it all. Plus they found the couple's life savings of $55,400 in cash and took that too, rather than bother with a messy arrest of the elderly couple.
All this havoc, disruption and suffering was over legitimate cultivation of marijuana for medical purposes: all 6 adults were Prop 215 approved.
"Smitty" and his wife Mary were at home Sept 24 around noon, when Sheriff's deputies and Child Protective Agency officers began arriving based on a complaint with a warrant in hand for one of the granddaughters. But they had to call in a request for separate parcel warrants on the elderly Smiths plus the 2nd granddaughter and her husband. Deputies evacuated everyone from their houses, forcing them to wait outside for five hours until the additional warrants arrived.
Once they gained legal entry into the Smith's house, it turns out deputies were more interested in robbing than arresting them, when they discovered $54,000 in cash and 2 family guns (revolver and rifle). Smith was smart to take his property receipt in the next day to reclaim his wrongly seized life savings and family heirlooms. He filled out forms claiming legitimacy for their life savings from his wife's inheritance and his own cashed in CDs. "When the Wall Street thing hit, I put money in a safe."
I asked him to describe the experience. "They turned everything upside down on me. They charged in here all of a sudden and went nuts. They said I couldn't have two gardens on one parcel. I had 17 plants for me and Mary. That's too many? They took my pot and all my life savings.

This is the type of shit, harassing Elderly People, that makes the Sheriff Dept. the largest criminal gang and cartel in Mendocino County, I wonder how many stacks of cash these crooks slipped under their belts?

You are delusional. Deputy Cox is a hard working and honest person, and if you had any sense at all you would realize the tremendous asset he actually is. He must have pulled you over and arrested you for something, and now you are a little bitter.... Maybe you should try to be law abiding and you would not have such a negative view of the law enforcement agencies and their employees who keep the community safe.

I was referring specifically to this statement... "Maybe you should try to be law abiding and you would not have such a negative view of the law enforcement agencies and their employees who keep the community safe."

For me personally, the negative view of law enforcement is fostered by the Covelo fiasco and subsequent cover-up and failure to investigate and make the findings public. Their reputation is further sullied by the countless reports of theft of money and property taken during raids under the color of authority. Throw on top of that a healthy dose of very badly behaving drunken deputies engaged in bullying behavior, drunk driving, sexual assaults under the color of authority... you get the picture. This isn't a case of a few bad apples... this type of behavior is endemic of a law enforcement body that is completely out of control and preying on it's citizens.

Goss's photo isn't in the booking logs, you wanna know why??
It's because Law Enforcement Officials are not held to the same accountability in Mendocino County.
This is a perfect example right here, happens all the time in Mendocino County.
Why was Goss:
A. Not booked into the county jail for DUI with property damage??
B. Not subjected to the same laws as everyone else and held for 24 hours in a holding tank??
C. Why wasn't his photo published in the same humiliating booking log,as EVERY OTHER drunk driver is.
D. Why was he put on paid leave? This obviously has turned into a free paid vacation for Goss. Must be nice to get a dui and get a paid vacation, what did Allman say about the $11,000,000 Sheriffs Dept. Budget not being enough??? But they have enough cash to pay deputies who are arrested for DUI'S??
E. Why was the official press release so vague lacking any details of the accident?
If this County really wants to take a bite outta crime, and clean up the Meth Heads who are destroying our community, the first and foremost place to start would be to weed out the Alcoholic Corrupt Officials and Meth Users who are given the Badge and Gun.
Right Now in Mendocino its a bunch of wolves guarding the Chicken Coop
Goss is another prime example, of a wolf guarding the chicken coop.
If there is no corruption in the Sheriff Department, then Sheriff Tom Allman should openly invite a "independent external investigation".
The investigation should include an advertisement in the local Newspapers and Radio asking people to come forward with any information they have or have heard of inside the Sheriffs Department.
Right now, these topix forums are the only outlet for people to talk about the Corruption in our local government ie. Sheriff Dept. People would talk more, but they are in fear and face intimidation. Even on these forums when discussing the corruption I recommend people to use an anonymous proxy, you never know what these people are capable of doing. They are not to be trusted!
The Sheriff and Jail personell ROUTINELY release prisoners at 2 3 4 o'clock in the morning as a form of " rare and unusual punishment" they especially like to do this to homeless people and people who have no ride as another form of punishment. Many people released have walked maybe 2-3 blocks before being picked up again for drunk in public,(read the reports I worked at the County Jail 11 years ago). The command to release prisonors in the middle of a cold December night without warning or preparation comes from high in the command of the Sheriff Dept.

How many more will Allman and his Cartel kill, how about those cash kickbacks from ranchers and growers in Laytonville and Covelo, ever wonder why Allman never fires Goss for all those drunk driving episodes??? It's cause Goss has doo doo on Allman, Allman don't want to go to prison......

What about those suspicious deputy "suicides"????
Deputies in the homes....... BOTH TIMES?????

Thanks for the info:

When it comes time to hold allman responsible then those who know the system and the sheriffs dept. might be called upon to help make the case for justice.
