Man seeks program in drug case

A 26-year-old California man admitted to possession of marijuana on Monday in a nearly four-year-old case.

Joel Phillip Grosskopf is seeking to participate in a drug program.

In exchange for his guilty plea, charges of possession of a controlled substance for sale and conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act are to be dismissed.

On April 20, 2009, investigators discovered a marijuana grow operation with 40 plants and paraphernalia at Grosskopf’s home in the 3500 block of Arcadia Drive in Jacks Valley.

Investigators recovered 40 live marijuana plants, two electric ballasts, three high-intensity grow lights, an electric timer, a handwritten list of marijuana plant names, a glass jar of processed marijuana and a CD with photographs.
