Spring Valley, CA–Sheriff’s detectives Wednesday served a search warrant and arrested two people at an illegal marijuana dispensary in Spring Valley.
Deputies from the Special Enforcement Detail, assisted detectives from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Marijuana Enforcement Team, during the 7 p.m. search at the marijuana dispensary, located in the 600 block of Grand Avenue.
During the search, detectives discovered several THC-infused edibles which falsely appeared to be legitimate candy and snacks. It is not uncommon for unlicensed and unregulated cannabis dispensaries to market dangerous products to customers.
MET detectives seized two firearms, one taser, approximately $23,100 in U.S. currency, 77 pounds of processed marijuana, 181 pounds of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) infused edibles, 163.5 pounds of THC vape products, 62.5 pounds of concentrated marijuana, and 96.5 pounds of THC infused drinks.
“We want to assure those we serve that the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is listening to the community’s concerns and recognizes the negative impact illegal marijuana dispensaries have on our neighborhoods,” the Sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Felony charges will be filed with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office against the two adults who were arrested at the scene.
