Taylor In A Statement.

“This is another example of people coming from out of state to grow marijuana illegally to then sell it on the black market,” said Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor in a statement. He added, “What’s concerning to me is they are infiltrating nearly every corner of our county with this type of illegal activity.” Plenty of Pueblo-area marijuana busts covered in this space have involved Americans, medical marijuana though many of them weren’t originally from Colorado. On April 5, 2016, for example, we told you about the arrest of nine men from Florida for illegal pot grows . And a roundup published just over three weeks later, on April 27, collected information about 22 Pueblo busts and 4,600 plants seized in just over a month ; three people in a family whose members had come to Colorado from both Florida and Tennessee were among those fitted for cuffs. At the same time, Sheriff Taylor has remained concerned about what he sees as the weed-related activities of Mexican drug enterprises in the Pueblo area. The PCSO recently maintained that four outdoor grows discovered in or near the San Isabel National Forest over the past five years were tied to cartels. In 2012, two grows were shut down, with 9,400 plants seized in the process. In October 2015, approximately 2,400 plants were spotted near the forest’s Millset Trail. And in July 2016, 1,000 plants were uprooted from private property near Table Top Mountain.
