San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Marijuana Enforcement Team wrapped up week 6 of Operation Hammer Strike, serving 23 search warrants throughout the region — including Pinon Hills, Hinkley, Spring Valley Lake and Phelan.

During the past week alone, investigators seized 23,553 marijuana plants, 2,267 pounds of processed marijuana, 14 guns, and $43,400 in cash. A total of 123 greenhouses were eradicated.

Property owners who are growing marijuana or are aware their tenants are growing marijuana on their properties in violation of the state law and local ordinances may also be subject to civil or criminal sanctions. Property owners are encouraged to contact their local law enforcement or code compliance agency to confirm if cultivating cannabis is prohibited or allowed under specific regulations.
