The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Forest Service joined forces to shut down two major marijuana-growing operations this week.

According to Sheriff Greg Hagwood, the operations were run by Mexican drug cartels.


Both of the grow sites were located in the Feather River Canyon.

Officers descended on the first site Tuesday, July 29. The second raid took place Wednesday.

“These are two of several drug cartel operations currently operating inside Plumas County,” Hagwood said. “Evidence indicates these suspects are from Mexico and have been encamped at the grow sites for several months.”

Hagwood said one of the suspects – an unidentified Mexican national – was arrested Wednesday after attempting to flee. The sheriff said the arrested suspect “suffered significant injuries as a result of being bitten by a law enforcement dog.”

This is a developing story. A complete report will be featured in August 6 editions of Feather Publishing newspapers.
