Chinese Marijuana Ring Busted in Fort Collins, Loveland
The Larimer County Sheriff's Office is stating that they have dismantled a Chinese black market marijuana trafficking organization.
A total of six addresses in Loveland and Fort Collins were granted warrants and searched.
All five of the locations in Loveland have been deemed uninhabitable by the Loveland Code Compliance due to the presence of black mold, illegal electrical wiring and construction modifications.
The search warrants netted around 1,000 pounds of gross weight marijuana, more than 2,000 live plants, and 156 pounds of processed high-grade marijuana ready to be shipped, possibly out of state.
Numerous agencies assisted the Northern Colorado Drug Task Force in the operation.
The investigation is currently ongoing and criminal charges will be filed as soon as the investigation has been completed.
