Meter bypass plans spark arrest of three – The Willits News.

When deputies responded to the site, they noted substantial evidence of a marijuana grow and obtained a search warrant. The house was a complete shell house, completely converted to growing marijuana indoors. Agents report finding 4,500 growing plants, about 20 pounds of processed marijuana, a loaded handgun and a bypassed meter.

Deputies speculate the operators of the grow house had apparently tired of paying $3,000 per month for electricity and that the operation had been in service for at least two years. The property owner lives in Arizona.

Michael Anthony Wade, 19, and Travis James Wood, 21, both of Garberville, and Christopher Scott Bartman, 23, of Benicia, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of cultivation and possession of marijuana for sale, bypassing a utility meter to steal electricity and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime.

Lets see here, 4,500 plants, and 20 pounds of processed marijuana, yet didn’t want to pay $3k per month? How many nuke and coal plants can we shut down if we quit growing indoors? Remember this is all about worshiping the green…… money.
