Sheriff's Department Makes T.O. Marijuana-Related Arrest

Tips regarding the case came from a service that allows for leaving information anonymously

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department on Thursday arrested a man from neighboring Thousand Oaks on suspicion of cultivating marijuana and possesing it for sale.

Working on initial information coming from "WeTip," a service that allows people to provide information about crime anonymously, narcotics detectives investigated possible illegal marijuana sales from a residence on the 3400 block of Calle Quebracho in Thousand Oaks, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff's Department.

The statement said that detectives contacted the resident, Jashua Tockerman, 34, while serving a search warrant and found about three pounds of dried marijuana, some of which was packaged for sale.

It went on to say detectives also found "a small, but elaborate marijuana growning operation inside one of the bedrooms" consisting of several mature marijuana plants that would be able to produce several pounds of marijuana.

As well, a large amount of money, determined by the detectives to be proceeds from marijuana sales, was seized.

Tockerman was booked into the Ventura County Jail and is pending arraignment or the posting of bail, according to the sheriff's statement.

The gang of thugs doesn't even have to PROVE that the money is "proceeds of crime". The US is nothing more than a fascist police state run by a criminal gang.

I smoked my first joint in December, 1967, at the tender age of 21. Now, a mere 45 years later, I still smoke pot. I have never 'graduated' to 'harder' drugs. I am living proof that prohibitionist propaganda is a fallacy...a blatant lie. The worst experience I had with marijuana was spending 5 years in Federal Prison for a pot offense. And, I am as harmless as a Beagle puppy. I wrote about the escapades that led to my 'vacation.' I admit, I had a great time...no one was injured, no one was killed...there were no victims. We were Americans pursuing happiness in our own way...harming no one nor their property. The book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank I would be honored by your review. It's available at Amazon.

What has happened to our 'free' country? George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry...they would all disown our cowardly, miserable, whining asses. Have we really come to this?

I, too, am appalled by the waste of resources better used to fight bigger and worst crime in our communities. FTL, I also have been a smoker for many years and am almost 50 now. I never graduated to harder drugs either, tried a few but didn't like them and always thought of better ways to spend my hard earned money. I much rather prefer smoking pot to drinking alcohol and maybe have a drink or two a month. I agree on the lies portrayed to us by "our guardians". All this bickering about spending and cuts in DC and yet they still throw our money into the fire when they go after bullcrap like this. Argh. This country is so ripe for a revolution, we just need a good enough spark provided.

@RadioFlyer... We are singing from the same hymn book. Many thanks for your comment, Hugh Yonn
