|This is the ranch where a giant pot bust happened September 12th, 2002. Estimated 3000 -5500 plants seized, planted in rows visible to the right of pool. Lower left corner is grape vineyard. Pot garden visible from neighboring public parkland (see trail), as was the DEA bust(who used chainsaws for the premature harvest)|
"In the past six weeks, as the harvest approached, neighbors said they have grown increasingly concerned as guards armed with crossbows began patrolling the property, using flashlights at night. Barbed-wire fences were built. Security guards threw knives at a life-size human silhouette that appeared recently as a target on the front lawn.
"We've been terrorized, and now we've been released," said neighbor Mary Roth, expressing relief that the operation had been shut down. " -San Francisco Chronicle
