Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman on Tuesday said he’s made it a top priority to crack down on illegal pot growers who steal millions of gallons of water during the growing season.
Area residents may tolerate marijuana growers, but they don’t tolerate water thieves who illegally tap into streams and their neighbors’ water tanks, Allman said.
He encourages county residents who suspect water theft to call the Sheriff’s tip hotline, 234-2100.
