A marijuana raid at properties outside of Ukiah netted five arrests and more than 800 plants, reported Mendocino County sheriff's officials Tuesday.

The combined enforcement effort involved sheriff's deputies and detectives, animal control officers, the Mendocino Major Crimes Task Force and state fish and game wardens.
They went to the properties on Low Gap Road on Thursday. At one parcel they found more then 230 large plants and processed marijuana, as well as $5,471 in cash, reported officials.
Deputies arrested Susan Applebaum, 58, Sidney Sittig, 61, and Max Rapoport, 26, all of Ukiah and Jonathan Sells, 27, of Hawaii.
At the second property they found more than 280 plants and arrested property resident Edward Husiar, 55.
A search of nearby fields turned up 335 marijuana plants in five gardens, officials reported. Those plants were eradicated.
Officials said deputies and officers have identified more suspects and the investigation remains open.
State fish and game wardens were investigating illegal water diversion to some of the gardens.
The five were arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale and cultivating marijuana.
