Rohnert Park man arrested after 596 pot plants found

A Rohnert Park man was arrested for suspected cultivation of marijuana after authorities raided two rented southwest Santa Rosa industrial units and seized plants and processed pot, police said.

Santa Rosa Police said they seized 596 plants, enough to yield $298,000 in usable pot, as well as several pounds of dried, processed marijuana during raids Wednesday on two Dutton Avenue locations.

A third location in Rohnert Park also was raided, police said.

Dennis Dwayne Bonilla, 31, was booked Wednesday into the Sonoma County Jail for suspected cultivation of marijuana, with bail of $10,000, police said.

He was not listed among the jail?s inmates Thursday morning, jail personnel said, so it?s possible he already has posted bond and been released.

I am in awe of the breathtaking nature here in Sonoma County and am so grateful to live in this spectacular region we call home. I am amazed, too, by the expertise in our community and by the commitment to protecting the land, its waterways, its wildlife and its residents. My goal is to improve understanding of the issues, to find hope and to help all of us navigate the future of our environment.
