A federal grand jury in Sacramento has returned an indictment charging Gustavo Rivera Martinez, 20, with manufacturing more than 1,000 marijuana plants.
The one-count indictment alleges that Martinez was responsible for an illegal marijuana grow discovered earlier this month on land in Tehama County, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.
The case resulted from a joint investigation by the U.S. Forest Service, Tehama County Sheriff's Office and the California Department of Fish and Game.
