In a major raid, more than 200 marijuana plants and 60 pounds of recently harvested marijuana were seized from an illegal outdoor cultivation operation in Twentynine Palms on Thursday. At least two suspects were arrested in this regard and charged for cultivation of marijuana and possession of marijuana for sales.

The members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department's marijuana enforcement team served a search warrant at the residence, located at 6667 Sage Avenue, which led to the discovery of the marijuana plants and the recently harvested marijuana.

“The large amount of marijuana found and other evidence seized at the location suggests the suspects had no intention of abiding by California’s medical marijuana laws or the local municipal code prohibiting growing marijuana,” the sheriff’s news release states.

Investigators said the marijuana cultivation was illegal and did not comply with either California's medical marijuana laws or the city of Twentynine Palms' municipal code.

The suspects are scheduled to appear before a judge on Monday.
