Hammer Strike

The second week of Operation Hammer Strike was a great success, with 23 search warrants served on illegal marijuana grows in communities including Phelan, Hesperia and Newberry Springs.

As a result of the operation, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department investigators arrested 41 suspects and seized 21,002 marijuana plants, 5,628.5 pounds of processed marijuana, nine guns, over $9,000 in cash, 6.2 ounces of psilocybin mushrooms, 1.7 ounces of cocaine, a stolen motorcycle, three stolen RV trailers, and a stolen trailer-mounted generator. A total of 113 greenhouses were eradicated during the operation

Great work, deputies!
