The Highway Patrol statement also says investigators found, at Worthington’s home, more than 500 pounds of marijuana, green houses, and hundreds of plants and invoices showing vapor pen cartridges used for marijuana oil, that were shipped to McKenna in Chicago. Gregoire says more arrests are possible. Meanwhile, Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal says his department never had any contact with Worthington. He says the address they found was only a P.O box number in North San Juan, which means it’s not certain Worthington actually lived in the area.
