STANISLAUS COUNTY – Authorities with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office eradicated an illegal marijuana grow west of the city of Waterford Tuesday morning.

Deputies surrounded the location near the area of Yosemite Boulevard and McEwen Road Wednesday morning to serve a warrant on a fenced off property.

Authorities were notified due to a fence that was too high for property code. The Stanislaus County Sheriff Air Unit was able to fly over the property and see the grow operation. A judge signed the warrant to be executed Tuesday morning.

In total nearly 1,000 plants were found. The amount of plants and outdoor grow is not permitted in Stanislaus County.

Neighboring almond farmers applauded the efforts of the sheriff’s office, saying the grows bring an unwanted element to their community.

“I have four kids,” one farmer who wished to remain unidentified said. “We don’t need this around here.”

Four individuals were detained to be questioned on their involvement in the operation. Utility and animal services were also called out to assist at the location.
