Rural Ceres home yields marijuana operation

POSTED May 7, 2010 10:08 p.m.
A rural Ceres drug operation was discovered by sheriff’s deputies Wednesday morning after someone reported shots being fired in the 5300 block of Moffet Road and a police chase resulted.
A Stanislaus County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the area south of Turner Road after a 911 call was placed at 1:40 a.m. As he arrived, he saw a suspicious vehicle speeding away. The deputy tried to stop the driver but was led on a six-mile chase. During the pursuit deputies saw occupants of the vehicle tossing items out the window. The chase ended and the driver, Omar Perez Delgadillo, and passenger, Benjamin Synder, both 24, were arrested on drug charges.
Along the chase route deputies found approximately 1,000 to 1,500 pills of Percocet and Vicodin.
Deputies returned to the neighborhood where shots were heard, but located no victims. At a neighboring house, however, they stumbled upon approximately 600 marijuana plants growing inside of four rooms. The plants were seized by members of the Stanislaus Drug Enforcement Agency.
No arrests have been made in connection with the marijuana growing operation.
