Lake Los Angeles Resident Deputy uncovers multi-million dollar marijuana farm

09-12-12

Deputy White, who serves as the Lake Los Angeles Resident Deputy uncovered a multi-million dollar Pot Farm early Wed morning.





Deputy White was patrolling in the area of 57th Street East and Avenue E, when he saw two large wooden enclosures in the desert north of Avenue E. He could see that the walls of the enclosures were constructed of plywood and the roof was covered with shade cloth and each of the enclosures appeared to be roughly 100 feet by 50 feet. The enclosures caught his attention because in June of this year, Deputy White found a similar enclosure in the 13400 block of East Avenue H. That enclosure was being used to grow marijuana. At that location, Deputy White arrested Abdul Jamar and charged him with cultivation of marijuana.

As deputy White drove towards the location this morning, he could see that the property was fenced with barbed wire. As he parked his patrol car outside the fence line, he saw a male exiting one of the enclosures. He immediately recognized the male as Abdul Jamar. Deputy White said when he called for Suspect Jamar to come to the fence. Jamar looked at him and said I guess I'm in trouble again. Jamar was detained and Narcotics detectives were called to the location.

When the detectives entered the enclosures, they found nearly one thousand mature marijuana plants. The majority of the plants were 6-8 feet tall and capable of producing over a pound of marijuana each. The detectives used chainsaws to cut the plants down and then asked the U.S. Forest Service to remove and destroy the huge pile of plants.

The plants had an estimated street value of three to four million dollars.

Suspect Jamar was once again arrested for cultivation of marijuana and is currently being held at Lancaster Sheriff's Station's Jail.
