Illegal Water Diversion From Creek

Four people were detained, and deputies determined the suspects were using Proposition 215 to disguise the illegal grow, according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office.
There were two wells on the property, but they weren't apparently enough to support the plants, as a nearby creek had been tapped. It was dammed, widened and deepened and lined with black plastic. A submersible pump was found there that piped water to the cultivation site.
