APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Deputies along with members of Code Enforcement served multiple search warrants targeting illegal marijuana grows in Apple Valley.
On Thursday, June 24, 2021, deputies from the Apple Valley Police Department, with the assistance of Apple Valley Code Enforcement, served multiple search warrants at locations across the Town of Apple Valley, targeting suspected illegal marijuana cultivation sites, both indoor and outdoor.
The search warrants led to the seizure of over 1,700 marijuana plants and the arrest of multiple subjects responsible for their cultivation.
