Ever wonder what's going on in those half vacant mc mansion exurbs?

“Not only are Bay Area families moving inland in search of cheaper housing, but apparently so are Bay Area drug operations. Nearly 50 homes in the Sacramento and Stockton areas have recently been exposed as elaborate marijuana growing operations.

Since Aug. 2, agents have raided five homes in Sacramento, one in Rancho Cordova, 19 in Elk Grove, and 19 homes in Stockton, three of which were raided Thursday.

Marijuana growing operations in upscale neighborhoods are becoming a common problem in North Stockton. Police say that one bust turned up 500 to 600 plants in all, with rows of the plants filling the dining room and great room of the home. In the utility room, an elaborate electrical setup fed power to lights for growing.

Authorities believe the operations have the markings of a regional crime ring capable of purchasing dozens of multi-million dollar homes and thousands of dollars in sophisticated equipment.

Antioch real estate agent Kevin Parker was involved in the sale of 20 homes in the Sacramento area.”
