Three out of four suspects allegedly involved in an indoor marijuana-growing operation in Skylonda were arrested this morning, according to Lt. Lisa Williams of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
The operation was discovered this morning by Sheriff's deputies who responded to a call regarding suspicious circumstances at a house on Starwood Drive.
According to Lt. Williams, a vehicle was parked outside a "vacant" house with four men inside. When the deputies approached the house, the four men fled from a back door into the woods.
Deputies searched the area and took three of the men into custody at 11:45 a.m., Lt. Williams said.
The final suspect remains at large and is described by the Sheriff's Office as a Hispanic male approximately 30 years of age with short hair, no facial hair, and a heavyset build (275-300 lbs). He was last seen wearing a gray/white t-shirt and blue jeans, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The investigation is ongoing, Lt. Williams said, and has been turned over to the Sheriff's Narcotics Task Force.
