    BUTTE VALLEY, Calif. Deputies in Butte County have arrested 12 people in connection with a marijuana grow operation that was run by a Mexican drug trafficking organization, authorities said.

    The dozen arrests come after deputies raided multiple properties along Bonnie Meadow Lane in Brush Creek on Monday, according to a Thursday news release from the Butte County Sheriff's Office.


    The raid stemmed from a Nov. 6 traffic stop, during which officers found more than $160,000 hidden in a vehicle, the sheriff's office said. Detectives believed three people arrested during the traffic stop were traveling from out of state to buy a large amount of marijuana. The suspects were also armed, authorities said.

    The grow-op on Bonnie Meadow Lane was run by a Mexican drug trafficking organization, the sheriff's office said. At the properties, detectives found 1,204 live marijuana plants, nearly 280 pounds of processed marijuana bud, about 450 pounds of marijuana bud on stem and more than 180 pounds of marijuana shake.


    Deputies also found several guns and seized more than $14,000.


    The sheriff's office arrested the following people:

    Roberto Estrada, 38, of Mexico. Charges: Maintaining a residence for drug sales, employing a minor under 21 years of age to sell marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale

    I was in the WalMart about a year ago and there was a white Mexican counting out a fistful of $100 bills. I bet he had several thousand $$. I thought he might be a drug dealer or labor racketeer.
