In southeast Fresno Wednesday afternoon, DEA and other law enforcement agencies raided a home in an apparent marijuana bust. Two people were reportedly arrested at the home near Armstrong and Woodrow Avenues
According to documents, on Tuesday the United States filed a civil forfeiture complaint against property at 11150 E. California Avenue in Sanger and 890 S. Armstrong in Fresno. The two properties are owned by the same family. In November 2010, law enforcement agents seized 4,391 marijuana plants, 1,136 pounds of processed marijuana, $4,000 in currency, and a rifle from the 11150 E. California location. Later, in July 2011, law enforcement agents returned to the property and eradicated 25,000 marijuana plants. The 890 S. Armstrong location presently has approximately 6,000 marijuana plants growing on it. The combined equity value of the two agricultural properties is approximately $2.3 million. The family also manages and/or owns an interest in two additional properties where marijuana is presently being grown.
