Groveland Marijuana Investigation Moves To San Francisco

San Francisco, CA – An ongoing investigation into a man growing marijuana at a second home in Groveland moved to San Francisco late last week.

On September 1st, the Tuolumne Narcotics Team arrested 38-year-old Barton Stone Lewis for cultivating marijuana at his Groveland residence.

Then late last week a search warrant was conducted at his home in the 800 block of De Haro Street in San Francisco by T.N.T., with assistance from the San Francisco Police Department. Officers located $12,000 worth of processed marijuana and a sophisticated indoor marijuana cultivation/processing room in the garage. Lewis, who had been released from Tuolumne County Jail, was arrested at his San Francisco home.

A second suspect, 31-year-old Christina Kate Lee, was also arrested in connection.

Sgt. Craig Davis with T.N.T. says that Lewis now faces felony charges in Tuolumne County and San Francisco.
