An illegal hash oil production and marijuana cultivation operation has been closed down in San Francisco, police announced this weekend, and two people have been arrested.
Alexander Lioulios, 33, and Lauren Todd, 26, both of San Francisco, have been charged with marijuana cultivation, theft of utility services, two counts of marijuana sales, maintaining premises where controlled substances are used or sold, manufacturing a controlled substance and conspiracy.
Police say they initiated an investigation in June of 2014, within the area of the 100 block of Molino Drive, after a strong smell of marijuana was reported from the area. A search warrant for a property was approved and served on August 7.
After execution of the search warrant, it was determined that a marijuana cultivation operation was being operated with an electrical bypass. PG&E examined the property and determined that electricity was being stolen.
