Spring Valley, CA–A coalition of local law enforcement agencies Wednesday served a search warrant at an illegal marijuana dispensary in Spring Valley.
Members of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Investigation Division, with the assistance of deputies from the Rancho San Diego Sheriff’s Crime Suppression Teams and members of the Special Enforcement Detail, served the warrant in the 10100 block of Campo Road.
Detectives seized 36.5 pounds of processed marijuana, 58 pounds of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vape products, 304 pounds of THC infused edibles, 40 pounds of concentrated cannabis, 2 pounds of mushrooms, and $5,933 in U.S. currency.
Investigators discovered several THC-infused edibles which resembled legitimate name-brand candies. It is not uncommon for unlicensed and unregulated cannabis dispensaries to market their dangerous product to children. Additionally, THC-infused food products closely resembling well-known name brands may be inadvertently consumed, creating potential health and safety risks, the Sheriff’s Department stated.
Sheriff’s detectives were accompanied by San Diego County’s Code Compliance Team, who noted several violations in the building creating a danger to its occupants. County Code Compliance requested San Diego Gas and Electric to cut off power to the entire property until the dangers could be mitigated.
The warrant follows community concerns about illegal dispensaries near schools and residential areas.
