Synopsis: On 05/01/12 Deputies from the COMMET office, assisted by patrol deputies and agents from the Mendocino Major Crimes Task Force, served a search warrant at 25155 Brooktrails Drive, Willits Ca.

Christopher Guerts was contacted at the residence. Located at the residence was an indoor marijuana grow operation. There were a total of 203 marijuana plants being grown in the garage, ranging from 6 inches to 3 feet tall. Approx. 2 pounds of processed marijuana and a digital scale were seized from the residence.

Guerts was arrested and booked into the Mendocino County jail on the listed charges. Guerts posted bail and was released.

A short time after leaving the scene, COMMET was advised that persons were at the residence removing property. COMMET returned to the residence and contacted Kathy Sibley. Sibley admitted to growing the marijuana plants but claimed that she was growing them for medical purposes.

Sibley was not arrested and the case is being submitted to the District Attorney's Office for consideration of charges against her.
