Not only was a June Lake resident illegally growing marijuana in his residence, but the grow operation had damaged the home to such a degree that the Mono County Building Department had to red tag the residence upon the discovery of the grow.
On Tuesday, April 26, at approximately 8 a.m., a Mono County Sheriff’s Deputy was following up on a report of a suspected illegal marijuana grow in June Lake. Deputies and MONET agents arrived at the residence of Timothy Marsh, age 27, of June Lake. Upon entering the residence, deputies found numerous marijuana plants and other supplies used for growing marijuana. It was determined that Marsh was not in compliance with current marijuana laws in terms of growing marijuana in his residence. As stated, the residence was red tagged as a result of the damage from the marijuana grow. Marsh was taken to the Bridgeport Jail where he is currently in custody pending an investigation with the District Attorney’s office. -MCSD/LAK
