Templeton charged that in 2017, Lindsey visited the property and presented a business card noting he was a county commissioner. Templeton also asserts that Lindsey told the property owners “you picked the wrong neighborhood,” and “what you are doing is illegal.”
Lindsey said he welcomes the investigation.

Further investigation is also needed to determine whether Lindsey may have had a conflict of interest when he initiated a lawsuit naming the property owners and others.

He also alleged that Lindsey’s actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.
A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.
