On 1-3-2013, narcotic detectives with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office concluded an investigation in reference to possible illegal marijuana sales from a residence located on the 3400 block of Calle Quebracho in Thousand Oaks. Detectives received information from 'WeTip' regarding the possible illegal operation. After some investigation, narcotic detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for the residence.


During the service of the search warrant, detectives contacted the resident, Joshua Tockerman. Inside the house, detectives located about three pounds of dried marijuana, some of which was packaged for sale. Detectives also located a small, but elaborate marijuana growing operation inside one of the bedrooms. The operation had several mature marijuana plants that were able to produce several pounds of marijuana. A large quantity of currency that was determined to be proceeds from the sales of marijuana was also seized.
