Three suspects are sought by police after a search warrant resulted in the seizure of illegal drugs and weapons along with the chop-down of a marijuana garden.

Arcata Police Department officers served the warrant at a home on the 400 block of Beverly Drive yesterday after receiving complaints from nearby residents of suspected drug activity, according to an APD release.

In their search, APD seized approximately 150 marijuana plants, a half-ounce of concentrated cannabis, suspected psilocybin mushrooms, four pounds of processed marijuana, suspected LSD, two firearms and $10,000 in cash.

Adam Steven Pokorski, Jacqueline Ann Pokorski and Jeremiah Funk are being sought on what is expected to be a laundry list of warrants for felony drug and firearm violations.

The electrical wiring in the home had been modified to facilitate an in-door marijuana growing operation, according to Building Department officials summoned from Arcata City Hall due to what police claim were "hazardous conditions in the electrical wiring" which were unpermitted. Power to the home was cut, as demanded by the City of Arcata, and the electric meter was removed by Pacific Gas and Electric until the home's electrical wiring is in compliance.
