Three Californians are facing marijuana and child endangerment charges in relation to an alleged illegal marijuana growing operation. One of the men reportedly is 17-years-old. The allegations allege the group was using the Internet to sell marijuana. The three were reportedly specifically arrested on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and child endangerment.

The three Porterville residents were arrested after raids of properties located in Porterville and California Hot Springs. Law enforcement claims the searches at the properties followed a two-month probe into allegations that the group of Californians was selling marijuana through YouTube.

Deputies with the Sheriff's tactical Enforcement Personnel unit in Tulare County reportedly made the arrests after allegedly locating indoor and outdoor grows of medical marijuana that law enforcement claims exceeded allowable amounts under California law.

The two women pled not guilty to cultivation of marijuana, maintaining a house for the sale of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and theft of electricity. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 13. The women are being held on $100,000 bail.

Neighbors reportedly believed the home where the two women live was being burglarized. A neighbor called police to report the suspected burglary. Police arrived and say they could see the marijuana plants through the broken front door. Police say that nobody appeared to be home at the time they arrived.

Police obtained a search warrant. In executing the warrant, law enforcement claims they seized 800 marijuana plants and $3,000 in cash at the home. Police also claim to have found an electrical bypass in the home that they say allowed the women to tap into a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. power line.
