Two men gave pleas to charges connected to a Marijuana grow in rural Butte County. 33-year-old Tony Moua of Stockton and 54-year-old Francis Mua pleaded no-contest Wednesday to felony charges of cultivation and possession of an assault rifle.
Both men face up to three years in prison at their sentencing set for October 31.
Drug agents issued a warrant at a parcel of land on Long Point road in Feather Falls where over 630 marijuana plants were found. Moua was found in a cabin on the property sleeping next to an illegal assault rifle. Mua fled from officers but was quickly captured.
According to a Butte County District Attorney's Office press release, evidence of their crimes was captured on a self-produced video found on one of their cell phones.
