On Friday, Roseville Police detectives, working in collaboration with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Homeland Security Investigation’s Customs and Border Protection Air Unit, arrested two men suspected of shipping large amounts of marijuana and cash from Roseville and other local communities to the east coast.
During the course of the investigation, detectives confiscated approximately 141 pounds of packaged marijuana and $221,000 in cash.
About a month ago, Roseville Vice and Narcotics Enforcement (VNET) detectives began investigating a shipment of marijuana from Roseville. They uncovered a scheme where suspects acquired marijuana from the local region, processed and packaged it, and then shipped it from post office facilities in Roseville and other local communities to Pennsylvania and New Jersey. One of the suspects then flew to the east coast to receive the packages, and presumably sold them. The cash received from the sale of the drugs was then shipped back to the suspects.
Investigators served search warrants on two properties in the Grass Valley and Nevada City area, where they found marijuana processing facilities, a butane-fueled hashish-manufacturing lab, vacuum-sealed packages of processed marijuana, large amounts of currency, a handgun, and approximately two pounds of psilocybin mushrooms.
On October 10, VNET detectives arrested Brian Lee Feld Getz, age 36 of Grass Valley, at a post office in Folsom. Timothy Conway Reimer, age 33 of Philadelphia was arrested the same day at one of the searched properties in Grass Valley. Both men are in custody in the Placer County Jail on suspicion of possessing and selling marijuana, and conspiracy.
The investigation is continuing, and additional arrests are likely.
