Deputies from narcotics and gang division seized 74 pounds of cannabis, several hundred pounds of THC products at dispensary on Grand Avenue

Sheriff’s deputies arrested two people and shut down an allegedly illegal cannabis dispensary Friday morning in the La Presa area of Spring Valley, a sheriff’s lieutenant said.

Members of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s narcotics and gang division served a search warrant about 9 a.m. at the dispensary on Grand Avenue south of Jamacha Boulevard, according to Lt. Nancy Blanco.

Deputies seized 74 pounds of cannabis and several hundred pounds of THC products, as well as one firearm and more than $12,000 in cash. Investigators also discovered several THC-infused edibles which falsely appeared to be legitimate name-brand chips and candies, Blanco said in a news release.

San Diego County code compliance officers also discovered several dangerous violations in the building and requested that San Diego Gas & Electric cut off power to the property until the violations could be addressed, according to Blanco.
