Pomona Police Officers locate Illegal Marijuana Dispensary

On April 24th at 3:01pm, Pomona PD received a call from a citizen stating a "man with a gun" was seen behind a building on the 1300 block of South Garey Ave. This location was also recognized to be a marijuana dispensary operating illegally in the City of Pomona as of four days ago. At that time, enforcement actions were taken and contraband seized. Due to the degraded state of the building, the building was deemed to be unsafe to enter, and was "red tagged", prohibiting individuals from entering.

As officers arrived at the location, numerous individuals were seen fleeing the location. At that time, no individuals were seen with a weapon. A rear door was found to be open to the building, so a search of the interior of the building was conducted to ensure no individuals were inside the building. While no one was found in the interior of the building, it was apparent the location had been very recently operating as an illegal marijuana dispensary once again, as there were several items of contraband in plain view. Overall, over 40 pounds of marijuana and marijuana products were taken as evidence, to include over $5,000 in U.S. Currency.

At this time, operating a marijuana dispensary is illegal in the City of Pomona.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Pomona Police Department at 909-620-2085.
