Authorities uncover sophisticated pot-growing operation in Crestline
Authorities serving a search warrant on a home in Crestline on Wednesday found 237 marijuana seedlings and cloned plants in a sophisticated growing operation.
The plants were in a room with temperature controls and growing lamps, along with a small amount of methamphetamine, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department.
Deputies apprehended Eric Dennison, 35, who lived at the home. He was booked on suspicion of cultivating marijuana and possessing methamphetamine and was being held in lieu of $25,000 bail, the department said.
Authorities said the search warrant was served after a deputy made a traffic stop of Dennison's vehicle and allegedly found a scale used to weigh drugs.
