Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department SWAT deputies assisted Riverbank Police Detectives executing a search warrant in the 5900 block of Roselle Avenue on Tuesday, Aug 14.

The result of the raid at the residence netted over 200 marijuana plants and three subjects were subsequently booked into county jail. Also found was over two grams of methamphetamine.

According to Riverbank Police, Detective Richard Gonzales noticed 3- to 5-foot plants visibly being farmed in the backyard of the ranchette style home earlier that week. Gonzales obtained a search warrant for the property and around 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning served the warrant.

Detectives arrested Dennis Dolin, 60, of Riverbank for criminal conspiracy, possession of methamphetamine, and cultivation of marijuana. Dolin was also on federal probation for drug charges.

Also arrested was Juan Valdovinos, 25, for criminal conspiracy and cultivation of marijuana. Anjmo McWilliams, 40, was taken into custody for a parole violation.

Sheriff's officials estimate the value of the seized marijuana at over $150,000.

It was one in a series of marijuana grow raids conducted throughout the county in the past week.
