Captain Jeff Powell with the Nevada County Narcotics task force says 37 year old Charles Carter Lee and 36 year old Philip Michael Lofton were taken into custody when the task force served a warrant at the property located in the 10-thousand block of Iron Clad Road on Tuesday.

“The information they got, the whereabouts was received via flyover and they made contact at the residence with a search warrant and recovered 62 marijuana plants, approximately ten pounds of processed marijuana and three or four ounces of hash oil.”
