Six months after Eddy Lepp was released from federal jail last December, he and Grossman wed. Already, Grossman had started selling churches to gullible buyers for$ 10,000 each. The strategy was grow marijuana on the websites; Grossman wrongly believed they had spiritual security.
This plan began to break down when cops were called to nab an employee at the Marysville church who was bring up plants and acting unpredictably on Aug. 1. This led to a shootout throughout which the criminal, Mark Anthony Sanchez, was killed, and two officers were shot by Sanchez.
While Grossman-Lepp declared innocence, the local police continued to investigate her criminal enterprises. Given that the killing, Grossman and Lepp separated.
A grower who was motivated to buy into their church scheme informs CelebStoner:
” I was with them when they set up churches. For the many part, not good folks. Black marketers that desired a way around the laws. It cost $10k per church for a half-acre grow site. Another $35k for a sanctuary center (dispensary) and a 10% tithe paid to Eddy and Heidi for ‘protection’ from the federal government. They established a great deal of them. It might’ve assisted many individuals, but ego took control of. Mercedes, clothes, you know the drill.”
About Grossman, the grower said after the Marysville killing:
‘ I know individuals who are sleeping with guns over this. They are frightened. Rightfully so. She is ridiculous. Truly, truly crazy. It constantly was a home of cards run by the crazy.’
Adult-film starlet Heidi” Cat” Grossman at right. When the grower decided not to buy in, Grossman sent out others to daunt her.” She attempted to have me killed, “the grower says.” This kind of stuff has no location worldwide of marijuana.”
Upon hearing the news of Grossman’s arrest, the grower specified emphatically: “May she rot in hell.”
Grossman is a previous adult-film starlet from Calabasas, CA. She studied at Oaksterdam University. When Lepp was in prison from 2009 until in 2015, Grossman was a regular visitor to the jail in Florence, CO.
. Lepp was detained in 2004 for growing almost 25,000 marijuana plants on his property in Upper Lake, CA. He called it Eddy’s Medicinal Gardens and Multi-Denominational Chapel of Marijuana and Rastafari and passed the name Rev. Eddy Lepp. These were the seeds of the Sugarleaf Rastafari Church. Thankfully, Lepp may have gotten away from Grossman just in time. He was not charged in the current round-up.
