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.
