TEMECULA (CBS) — A man arrested on suspicion of spousal abuse will face additional charges after deputies serving a search warrant Saturday allegedly found an indoor marijuana growing operation.
At about 8:50 p.m. Friday, deputies responding to a domestic disturbance report arrived at a residence in the 28900 block of Baxter Road, sheriff’s Sgt. Kevin McDonald said.
After conducting an investigation, deputies arrested Paul Reasebeck, 43, on suspicion of spousal abuse and making terrorist threats, McDonald said.
While they were on scene, deputies spotted evidence consistent with an indoor marijuana growing operation, the sergeant said.
After a search warrant was granted, deputies returned to the scene at about 11 a.m. today and found “significant quantities of marijuana packaged for sale, as well as substantial numbers of marijuana plants in various stages of growth,” according to McDonald.
The items were collected as evidence, and additional charges will be sought against Reasebeck for suspicion of cultivation of marijuana for sale, McDonald said.
