Mono County narcotics agents have arrested two local men on drug charges. Agents said that in the past few months, they conducted an investigation with the use of a confidential informant. Agents wanted to check out potential cocaine sales in the Mammoth Lakes area.
Agents did arrest Grant Douglas Hanover, 20, of Mammoth Lakes, for the alleged sales of cocaine and for violation of the conditions of his probation. At last word, Hanover remained in custody at the Mono County Jail in Bridgeport.
This week, Mono County Sheriff’s deputies received information involving illegal drug
activity in the June Lake area. Deputies said they contacted Michael Rosas, 43, of June Lake at his home. Officers said that they were “overwhelmed by the smell of marijuana coming from the residence.” Deputies detained Mr. Rosas until MONET agents obtained a search warrant. Then, agents discovered approximately seven pounds of processed marijuana and an elaborate marijuana cultivation operation were found.
MONET agents said that as part of the search warrant they recovered evidence of illegal sales of marijuana. Officers arrested Michael Rosas on allegations of possession of marijuana for sale, sales of marijuana, and cultivation of marijuana. Officers took Rosas to the Mono County Jail. He was later released on bail.
