Another Massive Marijuana Bust in Siskiyou County

A routine traffic stop in Siskiyou County, California, led to the seizure of over 2,000 pounds of marijuana. A sheriff’s deputy patrolling the Abrams Lake area pulled over a speeding U-Haul truck with Arizona license plates.

Upon approaching the vehicle, the deputy detected a strong odor of marijuana. The driver, identified as Oscar Gilbert Segura, 22, of Long Beach, California, admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle when questioned.

A subsequent search revealed 92 black trash bags filled with marijuana in the back of the U-Haul, weighing a total of 2,013 pounds. Neither the marijuana nor Segura possessed the required Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting Compliance (METRC) tags or transportation manifest, which are necessary for the legal transportation and sale of marijuana in California.

Segura was arrested on charges of transportation and possession of illegal marijuana for sale. This significant bust highlights ongoing challenges in regulating marijuana distribution in the state, even as California has legalized its use for recreational purposes.

Local authorities remind residents and travelers that while marijuana is legal in California, its transportation and sale remain strictly regulated, with proper documentation required to ensure compliance with state laws.
