Corona police bust illegal marijuana dispensary, arrest 5

Corona police say they arrested five people and seized cannabis products from an illegally-operating marijuana dispensary after serving a warrant on Thursday, March 2.

Authorities say the Corona Police Department’s Vice Narcotics Unit and city code enforcement launched an investigation into marijuana dispensaries that were operating against the city’s municipal code as well as state and federal law in early February.

A warrant served on Thursday at Corona Genetics in the 900 block of W. Sixth St. was part of that investigation, according to a Corona police news release.

Five people were arrested on suspicion that they were aiding in the operation of a marijuana dispensary, a city municipal code violation. The five were eventually released on a citation, according to the release.

Authorities say they also seized numerous pounds of bud marijuana, concentrated marijuana, edibles, cash, computers and other items.

Police officials are asking anyone with information about illegally-operating dispensaries in the city to call Sgt. Skip Shatford at 951-736-2423.
