A citizen’s tip to an anonymous tip line led to the confiscation of more than 240 marijuana plants in Newhall on Tuesday.
The warrant, which eventually lead to the seizure, was served at 10:45 a.m. on the 25100 block of Everett Drive.
“When the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station North Region Narcotics Team received information via ‘LA Crime Stoppers’ of suspicious activity occurring at a residence in Newhall, detectives were quick to investigate,” said Deputy Natalie Arriaga via a post on the SCV Sheriff’s Station Facebook page. “After serving a search warrant at the location, deputies found multiple rooms had been converted to a marijuana grow room, with approximately 240 plants.”
No arrests were made at the time of the incident, but, according to Arriaga, the investigation into the grow room remains ongoing.
