Two Arrested After Antioch Police Seize $300k Worth of Marijuana



At 11:00 pm Sunday evening, the Antioch Police Department patrol officers responded to a residence in the 5200 block of Delta View Way on a report of a possible marijuana grow house.

Upon arrival, patrol officers found Yaoying Yang, 44 of San Francisco, and Jincheng Ye, 48 of Oakland, at the house which was completely converted into an illicit, marijuana cultivation operation according to Antioch Police Sergeant Morefield.

Investigators were called in and ultimately seized approximately 300 marijuana plants from the home along with over 100 lbs of processed marijuana which has a street value of approximately $300,000.

Both Yang and Ye face charges of planting and growing illicit marijuana and were taken to the County Jail in Martinez, where they were being held in lieu of $15,000 bail.

The case is still being investigated by the Antioch Police Department’s Special Operations Unit. Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Detective Mortimer with the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6941.

  1. Its just weed get over it. Get the real crimanals out there. Like the thugs on sycamore street slanging Crystal meth,Coke, and all the other stuff they do. get the so many people with guns out here.

    • All of the above you referenced is true. But so is the weed Jjackson925! That breeds just as many guys with guns and other drugs. When you witness your friend having to bury her son because he got murdered over a pot deal gone bad, then you realize it’s not just weed!!! Grow a brain…
