Marijuana Operation South of Creswell (Photo) - 10/20/21

LCSO CASE #21-5946

On 10/19/2021 The Lane County Sheriff’s Office along with several local fire agencies responded to an address in the 81000blk of Hwy. 99 south of Creswell regarding a structure fire.  While on scene authorities observed evidence indicating the location to be involved in a large-scale criminal marijuana manufacturing and trafficking operation.  

Deputies applied for and were able to obtain a search warrant to seize evidence related to this operation.  Deputies executed the search warrant on the morning of 10/20/21 and seized a very high volume of marijuana.  Over 2,000 marijuana plants were seized in addition to over 200lbs of processed, ready-to-sell marijuana. The local street market value of the marijuana seized is estimated at over two million dollars.  This value if sold outside the State of Oregon could easily be tripled.  Evidence was also obtained that this was an unlicensed, non-medical marijuana operation. 

This investigation is on-going and formal charges have not yet been filed.  

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Oregon State Police Northwest Region Marijuana Team for their assistance with this investigation.
