On 08/31/23, the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on Yainax Drive north of Beatty, Oregon. The outdoor grow was dismantled after 579 plants were discovered.
The value of the illegal crop on the black market would have been approximately $3.3 million if the plants had been successfully harvested. It is also estimated that 312,660 gallons of water had been used throughout the growing season.
Klamath County Code Enforcement assisted in the service of the warrant. No persons were located at the property
