Drug Investigation at Short Term Rental House Yields 74 Pounds of Marijuana & $71,000 Cash



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.
