But moments ago, well following up on a graffiti related news story, ZachNews received more information regarding the un-permitted marijuana cultivation operation incident from Needles City Manager Rick Daniels.

Needles City Manager Rick Daniels tells ZachNews that the shut down occurred at around 9:30am PT on Tuesday.

We had the Sheriff’s Office (San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department) come in Monday with suspicion that there was – they had reason to believe that were was an illegal cannabis operation, because they can smell in the area. So they went up to the building where it was, came in and reported it to us (City of Needles), and we took a look at their utility bill and found a spike in use in electricity, which told us that there was probably cultivation. So we then went to court and got both a search warrant and inspection warrant- ones for criminal and one for civil – and the judge signed those, and on Tuesday morning we executed them (the warrants) and went out there with the warrants and we found a mother plant had clone and found 40 plus plants, which they were not allow to have in a commercial enterprise zone, home and personal use doesn’t comply here. So we issued notices of violation for ever plant, we had County Fire (San Bernardino County Fire Department) there worried if there was any hazmat materials which they found nothing, building officials were their (City of Needles) for building code violations which they found violations related to wiring. Afterwards, the guy said he wanted to get this matter resolve so this morning (Thursday, April 5th, 2018), Adrian (Senior Needles Code Enforcement Officer) video taped him grinding up all the plants and the product that there were some buds that were harvested because there has been a harvest even know there were like 40 plus plants growing, there was a harvest recently. So he wanted to resolve the matter so Adrian (Senior Needles Code Enforcement Officer) video taped him grinding it up, mixed it with dirt, and it got brought up to a landfill,” Needles City Manager Rick Daniels telling ZachNews.

ZachNews asked if anybody gotten cited or arrested by deputies with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station.

We (City of Needles) cited them notices of violations but they (San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station) did not  – there was no arrest,” said Needles City Manager Rick Daniels adding,We as a City (City of Needles) handle it as a civil matter and we issued 40 plus violations, and as of now, its shut down, cleaned up, all materials gone, and this was the only location that was shut down.”

Needles City Manager Rick Daniels tells ZachNews that this is was the second illegal cannabis operation that got found and shut down this year, the other illegal cannabis operation that was discovered was at a home along K Street in Needles, California.

The City of Needles held a dedication ceremony for the new Bill Yoney Substation on Tuesday, February 13th, 2018 at 811 Bush Street in Needles, California.

ZachNews broadcast live on Facebook the dedication ceremony for the new Bill Yoney Substation as family members of Bill Yoney along with City of Needles Officials and crew members who worked on building the new substation attended the ceremony.

City of Needles Mayor Edward T. Paget and family members spoke about the life of Bill Yoney and what he did for the community he loved.

ZachNews spoke with Jenny Yoney, Bill Yoney’s Daughter, about her father and what he met to the community.

Before his passing from stage 4 lung cancer in June 2015, Bill Yoney was a lineman for the City of Needles for 38 years, working hard to keep the community’s power on, including going out in the stormy nights to get the power back on.

Bill Yoney was very well respected and liked by many in the community and would help anybody in need, including helping to save a man’s life in a traffic accident.

A temporary sign was posted up during the dedication ceremony until the new brass plaque arrives and be place inside the gated substation lot on a cement block facing Bush Street.

Bill Yoney’s dedication to keeping the community’s power on still lives on in the hard working utility crews of today who are building new power lines to improve the power system in the community, and rushing out into the storms to get power back on as fast as possible.

The community thanks Bill Yoney for his service to our community and to all of the hard working utility crews who continue to keep the lights on in our community no matter what the weather conditions are outside.
