PASADENA (CNS) – Four people were arrested and about 165 pounds of
marijuana were seized today at two dispensaries in Pasadena that police allege
were operated illegally.
The arrests were made when investigators served search warrants at
1460 and 1470 East Walnut Street, according to Pasadena police Lt. Javier
Aguilar.
Arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale were 44-year-
old Jose Cano of Huntington Park, 20-year-old Vanessa Munoz of Monrovia, 22-
year-old Jocelyn Munoz of Pasadena and 20-year-old Monica Sandoval of Pasadena,
Aguilar said.
It was not immediately clear if Vanessa and Jocelyn Munoz are related.
All four were released on their signed promises to appear in court,
Aguilar said.
In addition to marijuana, investigators also seized $5,000 in cash and
other evidence, Aguilar said.
Dispensaries are not permitted in Pasadena, but the city is moving
forward under a measure passed by city voters setting forth regulations for the
sale and cultivation of marijuana.
City staff will provide information from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday at the
Pasadena Convention Center regarding “the upcoming process for issuing
cannabis licenses for retail, cultivation and testing operations,” Aguilar
said.
