Sonora, CA — An indoor marijuana gargen in the Groveland area was busted Thursday by the Tuolumne Narcotics Team (TNT).

Sgt. Scott Johnson says TNT went to the 20000 block of Ferretti Rd. to conduct an investigation in alleged marijuana cultivation at the residence.

TNT detectives met with the resident, Raymond Pretzer. He was found to be growing 74 plants in a hydroponic indoor grow room. The plants ranged from two to three feet tall. Had the plants been allowed to fully mature the street value would have been approximately $38,000.

Pretzer was booked into the Tuolumne County Jail on a charge of cultivation of marijuana. His bail was set at $30,000.
