A San Luis Obispo man was arrested for an illegal marijuana grow operation on Thursday, Oct. 14.

Officials say Spencer Jefferson, 26, was arrested after San Luis Obispo police served a search warrant at his home at about 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Jefferson was charged for "illegal cultivation of marijuana in the residence" back in November of last year. He had converted the inside of his home and his whole backyard into an illegal grow and production site, officials say.

Investigators say they received complaints that Jefferson was continuing the suspected illegal marijuana production over the past two months.

When serving the warrant, investigators found Jefferson was using his residence to illegally grow and produce marijuana.

The city permits up to six marijuana plants to those who are 21 and over.

The case is being evaluated by the district attorney’s office.
