From Bill Lindelof:
An arrest was made and 458 marijuana plants were confiscated in law enforcement raids across three counties last week.
The raids resulted in the arrest of Jonathan Farrell, 39, of the North San Juan area, a Nevada County Sheriff's Office news release states. Farrell was arrested on suspicion of growing, selling or transporting marijuana.
Search warrants were executed at nine locations in Nevada, Yuba and Sierra counties after a nine-month collaboration by the sheriff's Narcotic's Task Force with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. Aircraft surveillance had spotted marijuana gardens on nearly every parcel where the search warrants were executed, according to officers.
Farrell was named as owner of most of the properties. A total of $10,000 was also recovered in the raids.
