"I would like to highlight the skill and professionalism of our deputies to make this arrest and shut this illegal operation down with no use of force, despite the suspect having several weapons, these well-trained and highly skilled deputies took several drugs and weapons off the street and are to be commended." - Sheriff James Mendrick
Peterson was not around when served, but was aware of the warrant out for his arrest and turned himself in. He was wanted on a $50,000 arrest warrant.
No luck of the Irish for Eric Peterson as he turned himself in for the massive drug charges. Yes, you can grow your own people...Just not that big, not that much and not with the intent to cash in...No pot of gold for you!
