Out of state criminals here to score some pot for sale on east coast. Looks like they got one house wrong, invading a home that had no pot operation.

There are a couple sites on the County where you can look up parcels/properties to get some information.

https://common1.mptsweb.com/megabytecommonsite/(S(cbeeeqlffcmgkblsnqapbbgl))/PublicInquiry/Inquiry.aspx?CN=sonoma&Dept=Asr&Site=Public&PG=Search  You can look up by the parcel’s APN or address and get basic info.

http://prmd.sonoma-county.org/permit_history_lookup.aspx?sid=1015  You can review a property by address or APN for it’s permit history.  It will show all recorded violations and current status.
