The eradication of a large pot farm in Santa Clara County turned deadly. Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a suspected marijuana grower this morning in a remote area about ten miles south of Livermore’s Del Valle Regional Park.
“We are talking about very rugged terrain up in the mountains,” Santa Clara County Sheriff’s spokesman Rick Sung.
About 12 deputies started the marijuana enforcement operation at sunrise in the rugged hills near the border of Alameda and Santa Clara counties.
At 10:25 a.m., Santa Clara sheriff’s dispatchers received a call from a member of the operation that a suspected grower had been shot and killed.
