Big Bear, Ca, October 28, 2010, 8:00am – On October 26, 2010, the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station received an anonymous tip of a suspected marijuana grow at a residence located in the 100 block of E. Aeroplane Boulevard in Big Bear City. Deputies went to the location to make contact with the occupant, Bradley Suthard. Suthard became uncooperative with deputies, and was detained. The location was secured while deputies obtained a search warrant. As a result of the search, deputies seized several marijuana plants, a small amount of cultivated marijuana, and paraphernalia. Suthard does not possess the requisite paperwork to legally have marijuana. The eradication of the indoor grow has prevented drug sales in the estimated potential amount of over $56,000. Suthard was taken into custody without further incident, and booked into the Big Bear Jail on misdemeanor charges of battery on a peace officer, and felony charges of cultivation of marijuana. Suthard remains in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail. An arraignment hearing for this matter is set for October 28, 2010 at the San Bernardino County Superior Court.
