At 1400 hours, acting on information from a WeTip, the El Monte Police Department Special Investigations Team conducted an investigation in the 3100 block of Granada Avenue in El Monte regarding a possible illegal marijuana grow house operation. Detectives from the unit located the illegal operation in a detached garage which had been converted into a marijuana grow house. Though the investigation is still on-going, detectives confiscated approximately 250 plants and 80 pounds of finished marijuana product with an estimated street value of over $200,000 dollars. The male suspect who was present during the investigation was arrested and transported to the El Monte Police Department. While California has legalized marijuana for recreational use, this type of growing operation in a residential community is illegal and will not be tolerated in the city of El Monte. Additional questions may be directed to Lieutenant Christopher Cano at the El Monte Police Department at 626-580-2160.

EMPD wants to thank you for your help in locating Mr. Rocha, who has been located by LAPD.

The El Monte Police Department reminds you that celebrating the New Year by Shooting a Gun into the air is not only extremely dangerous but also a Felony that can lead to prison time for the offender. Every year we receive calls about people who refuse to obey the law and discharge firearms into the air. If you choose to engage in this type of activity remember, "what goes up, must come down." You are committing a felony and risking the lives of many with the dangers of falling bullets. If you see someone discharging a firearm in public or into the air, call 9-1-1. Enjoy the New Year in a safe manner with respect for your neighbors.

UPDATE: Thank you! Our missing person from our previous post has been identified and family has been contacted.
