    Good work, I wonder if the police were aided by the DEA or some sort of task force? No doubt he is a major kingpin.

    Lots of weed but not that much and only .7 grams of meth. That sounds like personal consumption. Wow 1600 bucks. What a bunch of KPD clowns!!

      FYI, “Marijuana is not a drug”, squatting on a property and illegal occupation of buildings on that property, growing medical marijuana on that property without the owner’s permission, possession of a loaded unregistered firearm in that building are all prosecutable offenses.

        Anonymous, your comment smells like cop talk….if so, I’m certain you don’t believe the owner of the property would admit to being aware of what was being grown? The amounts of seized weed and money are hardly kingpin drug dealer stash. 5 yrs investigating and this is the big raid? I imagine the costs incurred, and think how many other ways the money could have been spent. Hungry children for 1. Marijuana isn’t a dangerous drug. It’s widely used for medicinal and legal already. And .07 gr of methamphetamine? Clearly KPD raided a personal use house. Sad that anyone’s clapping cops on the back for this “collar”. All the fools that have read the pamphlets printed up by the powers that make money off this type thing…..the holier than though groups. Get on a true cause. Help the homeless. Feed hungry kids. Volunteer somewhere. Being clueless about marijuana and it’s effects is reason to keep an opinion to oneself. I myself do not smoke. Many yrs ago I did. Pot smokers are not drug crazed criminals. I look forward to a time, soon, when it’s no longer illegal anywhere. I find it sad that a place famous for the love of nature, is so behind on this. Wasting time and money on this? Surely cold cases are sitting unsolved…. if 5 yrs were invested and this was the big raid and result? Oops embarrassed much? Just one person’s opinion.

    Everyone thats judging should be ashamed of themselves, take a big look at your own lives and ask yourself if you really can call yourselves law abiding citizens? Have you followed all of the laws, im sure you all broken a few in your life time! Whether you’ve rode in a vehicle without your seatbelt, walked across the street without using a crosswalk, litter or even drove over the speed limit. However you all want to look at it, It’s still consider breaking the law and makes you no better then another one. Even if this person did get in trouble for drugs, that does not make him a bad person. STOP WASTING YOUR TIME BEING SO JUDGMENTAL ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE’S LIVES! YOU DONT PAY THEIR BILLS NOR DO YOU PUT THE FOOD THAT’S IN THIER MOUTHS SO SHAME ON ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE SOMETHING BAD TO SAY!
