This morning at approximately 8:15 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriffs in tandem with the Humboldt County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at 575 Connick Creek Road in Garberville. Upon executing the warrant, the deputies found the entire residence was being used to process and dry large amounts of marijuana.

According to the Sheriff Department’s press release, deputies found 51 pounds of processed marijuana, as well as over 1,100 plants being grown in four separate greenhouses. Deputies estimated the plants ranged in size from 6” to 5’ tall. Deputies also found packaging material, scales, and other evidence suggesting the marijuana was being grown for sale.

Upon arrival deputies located 40-year-old Allen Waterman and 39-year-old Jason Laursen in the residence, who were eventually issued notices to appear in court for cultivation and possession for sale of marijuana. The deputies also found evidence suggesting a third male suspect which the Department is currently seeking a warrant for his arrest.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or their tip line at (707) 268-2539.
