Bowe Bergdahl was seen at a Northern California marijuana farm during a raid last weekend, where the former captive of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network in Afghanistan was reportedly visiting friends.

The initial report from the Advertiser said that military officials were notified.  County Sheriff Tom Allman who said that Bergdahl was not involved in the growing of marijuana and was above politeness, showing his military ID as others in the house were being arrested.

Bergdahl is currently awaiting a court martial on charges of desertion, after being returned to the United States last May as part of a prisoner swap in exchange for the release of five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay.
