On October 9, 2011 at about 10:02 A.M. officers from the Redding Police Department responded to a report that Jarrett Case Westler, 21 years of age, of Redding, was illegally cultivating marijuana at a residence on Dee Court in Redding.
Westler was found to be on probation and to have an outstanding Shasta County Superior Court warrant for his arrest for failure to complete work days. A probation compliance search was conducted. During this search, the following items were located and seized; approximately one and one half to two pounds of processed marijuana, a shotgun that had been reported stolen from a victim in Redding in December 2010, and $1,001.00 in U.S. currency.
During the course of the investigation, officers located what were believed to be “pay and owe” sheets from the illegal sales of marijuana. Westler admitted to cultivating marijuana and selling it while possessing a medical marijuana recommendation that belonged to a third party. Westler obtained the recommendation from the third party so Westler could cultivate marijuana under the guise of being a “caretaker” for the third party.
Westler was arrested for the outstanding warrant, possession of stolen property, and possession of marijuana for sales and booked into the Shasta County Jail.
