ORLAND — Narcotics task force agents found more than 30 healthy dachshunds as well as six firearms, 84 marijuana plants and 83 processed pounds of the drug at one of two grows busted this week in Orland. Glenn County Sheriff’s animal control officers investigated the possible puppy mill Tuesday on the 6700 block of Malton Switch Road and took 21 dogs and puppies because they didn’t have necessary shots, according to a Glenn Interagency Narcotics Task Force press release issued Friday. Lt. Sean Arlin of the Sheriff’s Office said the dogs were in overall good health. “I actually wish I would have been there to see it,” Arlin said. “They were in and out of the house. They were everywhere — under beds.” The dogs will receive shots and remain in quarantine before the owners can come pick them up, if they can afford it, Arlin said. After a certain amount of time, the dogs will be available for adoption. They filled up the county’s facility. Task force agents arrested five people there, including Michael Clark, 42, of Orland; Anne Domingo, 45, of Artois; Randy Lester, 20, of Orland; Theodore Jennings II, 41, of Berry Creek; and Ruben Zaragoza, 23, of Orland. Task force agents in an aircraft flew over the county and located the large marijuana plot, the task force reported. On Tuesday, agents did a medical marijuana compliance check on the grow and determined it did not follow the law, according to the task force. They got a search warrant and seized the plants, the harvested drug, and firearms including a SKS rifle and an AK-47 rifle.
A large commercial processor was also seized. The marijuana had a value of about $167,000. Clark, Lester and Jennings were booked into the Glenn County Jail in Willows on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale, cultivation of marijuana and conspiracy. Their bail was set at $200,000. Domingo’s bail was set at $100,000 for charges of possession of marijuana for sale, cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance in jail and conspiracy. Zaragoza was booked into the jail on suspicion of possession of marijuana, cultivation of marijuana and conspiracy. His bail was set at $200,000. Animal control will continue to investigate the case. In the other marijuana raid, task force agents Thursday served a search warrant on the 4100 block of County Road P and eradicated 74 plants, some taller than 10 feet with the potential to produce several pounds of the drug each, according to the task force. Thirty-five starter plants were also seized. The marijuana is estimated to be worth more than $200,000, according to the task force. Agents conducted a two-month investigation into the site. Just three of numerous subjects at the residence were arrested, including Trevor Boegar, 26; Justin Parker, 27; and Colton Boegar, 20, all of Orland. Both of the Boegars and Parker were booked into the Glenn County Jail on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale and cultivation of marijuana. Their bail was set at $125,000 each.
