On October 19, 2012, Deputies from the Santa Clara Valley Sub-Station responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon in the 3600 Block of East Telegraph Rd, Piru. Upon their arrival, they were contacted by the reported victim, Wayne Cain, who said he and his business partner, Raymond Grams, were arguing over owed wages. Cain accused Grams of intentionally knocking him down with his car. Cain suffered minor injuries during the incident. He was treated by medical personnel at the scene and released.
During this investigation, it was discovered that Cain and Grams had a large marijuana cultivation in and around the residence where the original incident occurred. Narcotics detectives were called and assumed responsibilities for this portion of the investigation. A Search Warrant was obtained for the residence where a sophisticated marijuana growing operation was discovered. Several rooms of the rented property contained marijuana plants, high intensity lighting on automated tracks, multiple air conditioning units, exhaust fans with carbon filters to reduce odors, and propane fueled carbon dioxide generators. 541 marijuana plants were seized.
Cain was arrested for 11358 HS-Cultivation of Marijuana, and Grams was arrested for 245 PC-Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Marijuana Cultivation. Both were booked into the Sheriff's Main Jail.
