HUGHSON, CA - A residential marijuana grow isn't that unusual but what draws attention is the ages of the suspects: 72 and 65.
The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department says Ignacio Oseguera, 72, and Elizabeth Verver-Valdovinos, 65, of Hughson, were arrested on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, possession of concentrated cannabis, and child endangerment at their 1st Street home Tuesday morning. Deputies serving in the Hughson Police Department say they were responding to numerous complaints about the smell of pot and traffic at the residence on the 2200 block.
Deputies reported seizing 49 mature marijuana plants, processed and dried marijuana, and concentrated cannabis. The plants were found at the rear of the residence where a tall wall surrounded the grow.
The sheriff's office said Oseguera was also found to have $8,000 in cash on him when detained.
Four weapons were recovered at the home, including an SKS assault rifle, the sheriff's report said.
Law enforcement allege child endangerment because the couple has a teenage daughter who was not at home at the time of the bust. The girl was to be placed with relatives.
