On June 20 and 21 Merced County Sheriff’s deputies issued a search warrant and destroyed 7,532 plants and 500 pounds of harvested product. Six people were cited.
But that’s what sheriffs do. The real story is the house itself.
- The Cressley home’s real-estate listing talked up the extensive storage space and two three-car garages, as well as the privacy afforded by the 1.6-acre lot’s “tree line in front of the house.”
- The custom-built house—sold for $590,000 cash in April—also has a wraparound porch and incredible views.
