Sheriff’s deputies discovered two marijuana growing operations in Fallbrook and Bonsall on the first day of 2013.
The first operation was discovered at about 9:30 a.m. on January 1 in the 31300 block of Eagles Perch Lane in Bonsall.
“A squatter was living in this million dollar home that was up for short sale,” said Sgt. Joe Montion.
Arrested was a man in his 30’s named Phillip Walek. Some 185 marijuana plants were confiscated at the site.
Montion said Walek was arrested for cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, and possession of concentrated cannabis. The plants were being grown indoors.
The second bust was made at approximately 11:56 a.m. that day in the 2100 block of Brooke Road in Fallbrook.
“Deputies responded to a medical call at the address and one of the occupants of the home was transported to the hospital as a result,” said Montion.
“While at the site, deputies came across a marijuana growing operation inside the home of about 100 plants,” said Montion. “No arrests have been made in this case yet. The investigation continues.”
