Agents served search warrants at two properties in Shasta County Thursday, resulting in the seizure of more than 2,000 marijuana plants and one arrest.

Agents with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Investigative Team, Shasta Interagency Narcotic Task Force, AB109, Burney Patrol Division and California Department of Fish and Wildlife Watershed Enforcement Team, served a search warrant at two locations in Shasta County.

The first location was at a property located on the 30000 block of Smith Logging Road in Oak Run, where agents found 1,486 growing marijuana plants. Officials said the plants were found in three separate, sophisticated indoor structures.

Agents also found five pounds of processed marijuana and multiple guns. A large diesel-powered generator used to power the commercial growing operation was also seized.

Officials said they made contact with Baron Risling, 35, of Hoopa, who was found to have a prior felony conviction, which prohibits him from owning a gun or ammunition.

Baron was arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, along with multiple health and safety violations, agents said.

The second search warrant was served at a piece of property located in the 21000 block of Highway 299E in Bella Vista. A member of the Shasta County Planning Division was also there investigating separate Shasta County code violations.

Agents said they found a sophisticated indoor marijuana cultivation site and found 668 growing marijuana plants. No one was found at the property.

Agents said they also seized two boats and one motorcycle believed to be purchased from the illegal sales of marijuana. Agents also located and seized one utility box trailer thought to have been used to facilitate the commercial growing operation.
