Detectives arrest three in marijuana sting

Sheriff’s detectives arrested three men in connection with a marijuana growing operation in a Ramona residence on Friday.

The arrests were made after sheriff’s detectives, backed by a SWAT unit, served a search warrant at a home at 312 Fegahli Road following a month-long investigation, said Sgt. B. Hout of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Inside the residence, detectives found 120 marijuana plants, five pounds of high-grade marijuana with an estimated street value of $15,000, a firearm and $17,800 in cash, Hout said.

Arrested on suspicion of marijuana cultivation, possession of marijuana for sale and possession of a dangerous weapon were Joshua Day, 27, Justin Lambert, 34, and Douglas Politte, 27, Hout said.

The suspects had installed a steel security screen and steel gates at the residence, where they also kept an aggressive dog, he said.

    This is an absolutely ridiculous ideology of the typical stoner. . . The typical stoner has kids, takes them to school, properly cares for them and her family, they are not an ignorant fool; unlike the person writing about Meth Labs and grouping a marijuana user/grower into the same category. Meanwhile you are probably nothing but a fascist pig sitting atop your egotistical throne you have made up for yourself to make you feel better about the lousy persecuting person that you are. . . People who drink alcohol and/or smoke cigarettes are much worse than a typical stoner who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke cigarettes, and one who doesn't partake in illicit substances other than Medically prescribed Marijuana because I don't want to be a pill-popping, cigarette smoking, alcoholic idiot like anyone else in this god forsaken country. . . Instead I am a responsible person with a caring heart that wishes for the best, though with humans on this planet I can hardly see that as a potential outcome. . .
