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.
