From Bill Lindelof:
Drug enforcement officers arrested one man and found hundreds of marijuana plants Wednesday after serving search warrants at three Nevada County sites.
The first warrant resulted in the arrest of Robert Furnas, 50, of Nevada City on suspicion of growing and possessing marijuana. Nevada County Sheriff's Narcotics Task Force officers found and destroyed 354 marijuana plants in a large garden on federal land off Lower Greenhorn Road.
Later in the day, deputies served a search warrant in the 14000 block of Chalk Bluff Road. There, deputies seized 758 marijuana plants growing outdoors.
They also found an underground growing facility in a large metal portable storage container. The container had ventilation and grow lights.
The third search warrant was served on the 15000 block of McQuiston Lane in Grass Valley, where 301 marijuana plants were found.
No arrests were made at either of the two later searches.
