A man was sentenced Monday to 18 months in prison for involvement in a pot grow in Terra Bella.
Juan Carlos Perez-Gonzales, of Michoacán, Mexico, pleaded guilty last year to involvement in a marijuana cultivation site where agents seized 1,313 marijuana plants, two firearms and arrested six people, including Perez. The marijuana was valued at $1.5 million.
Agents found the site after following a supplier to the Terra Bella property. That same supplier previously delivered equipment for marijuana cultivation on public lands in Ventura, San Luis Obispo and Kern counties.
