FRAZIER PARK (Wednesday, June 10 5 p.m.)—A marijuana grow house was discovered by Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies on June 4 in Lockwood Valley, according to a sheriff’s press release. After investigation, an arrest was made in the case on June 9.

When a deputy responded to a call about suspicious circumstances at a house in the 16000 block of Lockwood Valley Road, he noticed a very strong odor of marijuana, according to the release.

Narcotics detectives search-ed the property, finding an elaborate hydroponic growing system throughout the house, garage and an outbuilding.

Over 1,000 plants were taken from the property. It appeared that no one was living at the home.

Detectives met with property owner Steven Kall, 54 of Granada Hills, on June 9 and arrested him for marijuana cultivation. Kall was booked into the Ventura County Sheriff’s main jail.
