Two suspects in a Chino Hills marijuana grow house investigation led San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies on a five-mile chase before the vehicle yielded to deputies on Tuesday, July 25, according to a news release.
When deputies subsequently searched the 5-bedroom residence, they recovered 391 plants and more than four pounds of processed marijuana.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies found 391 marijuana plants and about four pounds of processed marijuana in a five-bedroom Chino Hills home that had been turned into a grow house, according to deputies.
Driver Zhi Cheng Zeng, 40, and passenger Hui Yuan Li, 37, both of Alhambra, stopped on northbound 71 Freeway near the westbound I-10. They were arrested on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana and failure to yield.
Around 3 p.m. Tuesday, deputies from the Chino Hills station were conducting surveillance on a suspected marijuana cultivation operation in the 3400 block of Dynelo Avenue in Chino Hills. They saw the two suspects leave the house and tried to conduct a traffic stop.
Zeng was cited and released with no court appearance date set yet, according to San Bernardino County jail records. No jail records were immediately available for Li.
