COLUMBIA (CBS13) — A father and son in Tuolumne County were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of harvesting marijuana for sale, according to the sheriff’s office.
Agents executed a search warrant at 21827 Good Luck Mine Road in Columbia and arrested Craig Dean Carter, 58, and Tarion Michael Reiner, 29, on multiple felony charges.
Agents recovered about 90 pounds of processed marijuana with a street value of $270,000 and 160 grams of hash valued at about $5,000.
Agents also seized 40 pounds of marijuana shake often used in the hash-making process. A small amount of methamphetamine was also seized, the sheriff’s office said.
Both suspects claimed the marijuana was for medical purposes, but detectives found the property to have security fencing, video surveillance systems and guard dogs, the sheriff’s office said.
The property was in “deplorable” conditions, according to the sheriff’s office, littered with large amounts of garbage and vermin feces.
