LANCASTER – Deputies with the LAN-CAP Team from Lancaster Sheriff’s Station concluded a several weeks’ long investigation with a marijuana bust in an east Lancaster trailer park last week, authorities said.
The raid happened around 1:30 p.m., Sept. 19 at a trailer park on the 45000 block of Challenger Way, where deputies had received tips of suspected drug dealers selling to children, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Miguel Ruiz.
The investigation led deputies to a specific mobile home, where they found seven mature marijuana plants, several smaller seedlings, a make-shift hydroponic room, two digital scales, three containers of packaged marijuana and plant growth chemicals, Ruiz stated.
Inside the home were 44-year-old Jason Jentink, and his son, 20-year-old Joseph Jentink.
The elder Jentink was released to maintain care of an elderly relative, but is expected to face criminal charges, according to Ruiz.
His son, Jason Jentink, was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of marijuana and cultivating marijuana. He was booked at the Lancaster Sheriff Station on $20,000 bail and released the next day, according to LASD inmate records.
As of Tuesday morning, no charges had been filed against either Jentink, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
