On January 9, 2023, the Josephine Marijuana Enforcement Team (JMET) executed a search warrant in the 3000 block of Leland Road in Wolf Creek regarding an illegal indoor marijuana grow site and interstate drug trafficking.
The search warrant was executed with the assistance of Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Oregon State Police (OSP) and Josephine County Code Enforcement.
During the execution of the warrant, more than 250 marijuana plants and approximately 3,000 pounds of processed marijuana were seized and destroyed. Additionally, $6,000 in money orders and five firearms were seized at the scene.
The property also had multiple electrical, water and solid waste code violations. These violations could result in the civil forfeiture of the property.
