Tip leads to large scale marijuana operation

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

A tip received last March led  investigators to a house in Newcastle. The tip sparked an investigation that  resulted  in the discovery of dozens of large scale residential marijuana grow operations throughout King County.

Last week detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Office  served search warrants on 27 locations in King County. Five people were arrested for multiple charges including  the Manufacturing   of Marijuana.

Sheriff’s Office detectives also seized five houses that they believe were purchased with the proceeds from marijuana sales.

 Locations of the warrants and ages and hometowns of the arrested suspects will be released at a later date.
