Josephine Co. Sheriff's Office

On August 4, 2022 the Josephine Marijuana Enforcement Team (JMET) with the assistance of Josephine County Code Enforcement executed a search warrant in the 5000 block of Reeves Creek, Selma regarding an illegal marijuana grow site.

During the execution of the warrant, 145 growing marijuana plants and approximately 200 pounds of processed marijuana was seized and destroyed. In addition to the marijuana plants and processed marijuana, multiple firearms were seized. Although the size of this grow operation was not large in comparison to others we have seen this year, it was well beyond the legal limit of 4 plants allowed per Oregon State Law. JMET always leaves 4 legal marijuana plants when we dismantle each grow operation.

The property also had multiple electrical and solid waste code violations. These violations could result in the civil forfeiture of the property. 

Patrick Timothy Cross was taken into custody and lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Unlawful Manufacturing of Marijuana and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.

At the time of this press release the investigation is ongoing and no further details are being released.
