A tip led to the arrest of a man authorities say was running an illegal drug operation out of a Conejo Valley home.
Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say they received information about a possible operation taking place on West Sidlee Street, in Thousand Oaks.
After getting a search warrant, they raided the home, and found more than 30 pounds of dried marijuana, marijuana plants, illegal mushrooms, and some methamphetamine.
They arrested Jeffrey Ruthenback of Thousand Oaks for cultivation of marijuana for sale, marijuana cultivation, and possession of controlled substances.
Detectives say they arrested a second man, identified as David Staggs, when he showed up during the raid, and was in possession of some methamphetamine.
