VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com)- Daniel Oley, 28, a resident of Victorville was arrested for operating an illegal marijuana dispensary, authorities said.
Investigators from the Victorville Gang Enforcement Team and deputies from the Victorville Police Department served a search warrant in the 17000 block of C Street. Investigators found evidence the location was being used to distribute and sell marijuana and marijuana-related goods. Processed marijuana, concentrated cannabis (THC Wax and THC Oil), marijuana edibles and currency were seized from the location. Daniel Oley was identified as the primary suspect and was present at the location when investigators conducted their investigation. Oley was arrested for the illegal sales of marijuana and operating an illegal marijuana dispensary.
A case will also be investigated by the City of Victorville, Code Enforcement Division and the tenants and/or property owner(s) may be issued a citation for the violations and ultimately fined for the violations if they go uncorrected. There were several violations noted during the service of the search warrant, which will be sent to the Code Enforcement Division for follow up investigation.
The illegal marijuana dispensary was discovered several weeks ago by investigators after residents in the area complained to officials. A preliminary check into the business showed there were no licenses or permits issued to operate this business. The small operation was set up inside of a metal building with other residences in the immediate area.
Evidence gathered during the investigation suggests the suspect, who was in charge of and working at the location, was not in compliance with California medical marijuana laws and local ordinances. The County of San Bernardino has an ordinance prohibiting medical marijuana dispensaries, mobile marijuana dispensaries, delivery services, and outdoor cultivation of marijuana within the boundaries of the City of Victorville.
All of the criminal reports will be submitted to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office at the conclusion of the criminal investigation. The District Attorney’s Office will determine what, if any, criminal charges will be filed. The property owner(s) may face civil and/or criminal charges at a later date.
