Roseland Area Morning Raid Targets Backyard Pot Gardens

Police discovered 30-40 plants in each garden that had marijuana in it.

By Bay City News Service

Law enforcement agencies conducted a raid targeting outdoor marijuana gardens at homes in the Roseland area in southwest Santa Rosa and
unincorporated Sonoma County this morning, a sheriff's lieutenant said.

The raid was carried out at 32 homes in a four-block area near Moorland and Bellevue avenues beginning at 8:45 a.m., Lt. Dennis O'Leary said.

The marijuana plants were growing in backyards that were between 100 and 400 square feet, O'Leary said. Each garden contained between 30 and
40 plants.

Details on the number of arrests were not yet available, but most
of the homes were occupied, O'Leary said.

Approximately 140 law enforcement officers from the sheriff's office, Santa Rosa Police Department, the California Highway Patrol, the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force, and the Department of Homeland Security participated in the raid, O'Leary said.

Is this the Roseland (Santa Rosa) Patch? I read this site for local news about Rohnert Park. How in the name of Robert Rohnert is this related to Rohnert Park?

It amazes me that with so many legal options for growing pot, that there are still people stupid enough to get busted.

I agree with Rex and would like to say please remove this from the RohnertPark-Cotati Patch site
