More than $3 million worth of cannabis, along with cash and guns, were confiscated from an unlicensed indoor cultivation operation in Livermore as part of a joint law enforcement investigation involving state and city agencies earlier this month.
No arrests have been made to date, although one person was detained and subsequently released from custody as part of the ongoing investigation, according to authorities.
“Illegal cannabis is tied to violent crime in our communities, harmful pesticides, and environmental damage and today’s action represents an important step in our efforts to tackle the illegal market,” said Bill Jones, chief of the California Department of Cannabis Control’s Law Enforcement Division — the agency that licenses and regulates cannabis businesses in the state.
“(The) successful enforcement action in Livermore resulted in over 2,400 pounds of illegal cannabis being seized,” Jones added.
The investigation involved the state’s Department of Cannabis Control and Department of Fish and Wildlife, along with the Livermore Police Department.
