A Carson City couple growing excessive amounts of marijuana in plain sight has been arrested by Sheriff’s Deputies.
Deputies obtained a search warrant on the residence of Brian and Tanya Walkem at 1116 Fremont in Carson City. When deputies knocked on the door they told the couple that they were there to investigate whether they were in possession of too much marijuana and whether they were growing more than the legal limit under the law.
The Walkem’s proceeded to escort the deputies around the property showing plants growing against the backyard fence, along a side yard, growing in a well lit grow-house, and more plants inside the home. Deputies also found evidence of a process of concentrating marijuana in to a more potent product which is against the law. All-in-all more than $50,000 in illicitly grown and processed marijuana.
Both Brian and Tanya Walkem were arrested – Brian for Illegal Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession For Sale, Illegal Trafficking and Cultivation of Concentrated Marijuana. Tanya was charged with Illegal Cultivation of Marijuana and Illegal Possession of a Controlled Substance.
From Candidate for Congress Clint Koble:
I support Speaker Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representative’s decision to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump. His actions regarding the whistleblower incident, and the exchange he had with Ukrainian president Zelesnky regarding the Bidens, is alarming and unconstitutional. These latest actions by President Trump cross the line into impeachment territory.
One of the founding principles of our country is that no one is above the law. The House needs to follow through with the impeachment inquiry, and uncover the facts. Our democracy has been held hostage by this President long enough – he ignores our laws and our principles, and even basic human decency. We need to restore a system of checks and balances to prevent abuse of power by the Executive Branch. Our American democracy is defined by those willing to defend and fight for it. There’s never a wrong time to do the right thing.
