KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Continued complaints about illegal marijuana grow operations led deputies to raid two separate sites last Friday, according to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO).
The first raid occurred at a forested lot on Thunderbird Lane in Sprague River, KCSO said. Deputies seized 121 marijuana plants and two guns — arresting two men who did not have grower cards or registration for the grow site.
27-year-old Dylan Phillip Fremouw was charged with both Manufacturing and Possession of Marijuana, plus Felon in Possession of a Firearm. 45-year-old Edward Nicholas Jimenez was charged with Manufacturing and Possession of Marijuana.
On the same day, deputies raided a property on Parazoo Trail in Bly, seizing 102 marijuana plants, 25 large sealed bags containing processed marijuana, growing and packaging equipment, and three firearms.
Although the second location was not a registered grow site either, KCSO said that no one was there when deputies arrived and the investigation remains ongoing.
KCSO has executed a flurry of raids over the last several months — netting 553 illegal plants in three raids less than two weeks ago.
