Seventy-four pounds of marijuana and more than $71,000 cash. That’s what West Precinct undercover detectives discovered Thursday during a drug investigation at a short term rental property at 2912 Tuggle Avenue.
Three California men in the house, Bruce Malmstead, 34, of San Diego, Fred Ferguson, 38, of Vallejo; and Ricky Ware, 34, of Sacramento, are jailed on felony marijuana charges. The marijuana has an estimated street value of $250,000. Also seized from the residence was a hand drawn flow chart that appears to represent a possible distribution chain.
Malmstead is jailed in lieu of $76,000 bond. Bail for Ferguson and Ware is set at $77,000.
