PHOENIX — Phoenix police say they have arrested three men accused of illegally running a medical marijuana facility.
Sgt. Tommy Thompson sent out a press release early Saturday morning with the details. According to the release, on Friday evening officers served a search warrant to a house on the 12300 block of North 32nd Street.
The search warrant was served after probable cause determined the individuals had no valid business license but were selling marijuana, brownies, muffins and candies containing marijuana. Along with the items, several weapons were seized by officers.
Kenneth George Winans, 52; Hernan Andre Vega, 40; and Jeremy Lee Buford Skidmore, 34, were arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Jail for illegally controlling an enterprise, possession of marijuana for sale and possession of narcotic drugs for sale. Vega and Skidmore were also charged with possessing a firearm during a drug offense.
Arizona voters approved the use of medicinal marijuana in 2010. The Department
of Health Services oversees the program and regulates dispensaries where
patients and caregivers can legally buy marijuana.
