SAN DIEGO (CBS8) - Officers with the San Diego Police Department's Narcotics Unit raided three surrounding businesses in Palm City Wednesday morning, detaining two people.
Police served a search warrant at the 600 block of Hollister St. where they say an illegal marijuana dispensary was operating, along with two associated businesses.
Police say they raided the surrounding businesses because they believe they are connected as far as ownership and leases. The businesses involved in the raid are Cabana Liquor, Palm City Smoke Shop, and Outer Reach Meds.
According to the San Diego Police Department, the narcotics unit is working with the City Attorney's Office to investigate "all illegal marijuana dispensaries operating within the City of San Diego."
Wednesday's raid resulted in the seizure of approximately 100 lbs. of marijuana, edibles and an undisclosed amount of concentrated cannabis. Police say they also seized two handguns and an AR-15 style assault rifle, cash and business cards.
The two people detained during the raid have not been arrested, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing.
