On Wednesday at about 2 p.m., deputies from the Buttonwillow Substation, along with the Major Violator’s unit and C.S.U. member’s, executed a search warrant in the 400 block of Buttonwillow Drive.
The search warrant targeted an illegal marijuana grow located approximately four blocks from the Buttonwillow Elementary School, deputies said.
The search warrant was prompted by several citizen complaints regarding the marijuana and its location.
Deputies said there were two pit bulls used to guard the marijuana.
The dogs were contained and deputies said they found 120 marijuana plants located on the property. The plants were seized and later destroyed by deputies.
Deputies said two people were cited as a result of the marijuana.
James Wayne Cruthirds, who was on active felony probation for narcotics violations was arrested and later released on charges of possession of marijuana.
Angela Mabry was cited and released regarding the recently passed Kern County Ordinance for possession of more than 12 marijuana plants.
