The warrant was served about 3:30 p.m. Friday at the home, which sits on a multi-acre property.

The suspect, identified by authorities as 42-year-old Jesus Gonzales Garcia of Jurupa Valley, was subsequently booked on suspicion of cultivation and possession of marijuana for sales.

His arrest followed a month-long investigation by a drug task force that had reportedly received a tip of the marijuana grow.

Jail records showed that Garcia remained jailed Saturday in lieu of $25,000 bail, according to City News Service.
