All three were charged with possession of marijuana, a first-degree felony. The suspects were enroute to New York.

  1. This story is missing many facts and is twisted to attract as many readers as possible.
    After reviewing the case, our company, CITY Bail Bonds of Los Angeles California posted their $300,000 Ohio bail bond without any collateral. These guys will have their day in Court.

Im thinkin he is not…. OH and to say your a bounty hunter and not be. is a D fellony IN the state of INDIANA. WWW.joebountyhunter.com

  3. Wow I had no idea that there were
    bounty hunters living in Alhambra…
    and to answer Richard’s question,
    hydroponic marijuana is grown all over
    California but whether it was done legally
    in this case is a good question

  4. that is a monstrous amount of pot. does anyone know where it’s from? hydroponic? the pot was grown in water? again, where?

Do you have a question you would like to ask Alhambra candidates?

Ask your Alhambra City Council OR your Alhambra Unified School Board Candidates a question ahead of the 2020 elections!
