3,880 Plant Humboldt Sheriff Bust in Eureka – No Arrests – Gotta Love It

At least the homeowners weren’t arrested.  The apparent hired help got busted though.

Eureka yurt yields more than 3,880 pot plants

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 8:37 PM EST EUREKA, Calif. (AP) – State and local drug agents say they found 3,881 marijuana plants and 110 one-pound bags of dried pot inside a Eureka yurt and seized $420,000 in cash from the structure and a nearby home.

45-year-old John Eaton Cromwell and 42-year-old Elisabeth Nergaard Olsen, were cited for cultivation of marijuana, possession for sale of marijuana and maintaining a drug house, but weren’t arrested because they are the parents of 4 young children, according to the sheriff’s department.

A third resident of the home, 34-year-old Charles Bruzza of Portland, Ore., was jailed and held on $75,000 bail.

No – this is separate from our other 3,000 plant bust http://www.times-standard.com/breakingnews/ci_20070492  but this one is not being reported locally yet for some reason.  Maybe the discrepancy in the treatment of the suspects?
