On March 12, 2021, personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Moreno Valley Station Problem Oriented Policing Team, served a search warrant related to marijuana cultivation, in the 16000 block of Palomino Lane. Deputies had previously received information of a possible drug house at the location from a concerned citizen in the neighborhood. Further investigation led to the authoring and execution of a search warrant for the residence. 

During the service of the search warrant, 1088 plants in various stages of growth were collected for a total of approximately 500 pounds. In addition, deputies located several exposed electrical wires and an additional electrical panel within the home. Deputies also discovered the interior of the home had been altered and converted into a cultivation home with no usable living space left. At the conclusion of the search warrant service, a Southern California Edison (SCE) technician responded and confirmed the electric panel was damaged and it posed a fire hazard. The residence is part of a densely populated neighborhood with occupied homes surrounding it, creating an extremely dangerous environment for the citizens. SCE assisted in interrupting electrical service to the location to avoid the potential of an electrical fire. No suspects were located within the home at the time of the search warrant.

The goal of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is to improve the quality of life for those residing within the community. “Community Policing” involves partnerships between law enforcement and community members. This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Deputy Damian Chavez at the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station by calling 951-486-6700.
