Investigators are still trying to sort out a reported home invasion of a marijuana garden in on Sweetland road. Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal says the reported crime happened Friday afternoon, when a man reported seven to eight armed people were beating him and stealing marijuana plants. Sheriff Royal says the victim reported his ex-girlfriend and a number of other men were trying to take marijuana the girlfriend was owed.
The victim said he was beaten with plastic pipe, punched and kicked. The ex girlfriend said she was only getting the marijuana owed her. The Sheriff says investigators are still interviewing witnesses and will forward the case to the district attorney.
