Deputies raided and shuttered what they said was an illegal medical marijuana dispensary Thursday, the same Spring Valley shop they had shut down earlier this month.
The 7 a.m. raid at OG Holistic turned up what the sheriff’s department said in a statement was “a lot of marijuana,” and related items, as well as $2,500 cash.
They also arrested an employee of the dispensary, on Troy Street near Central Avenue, for an outstanding warrant.
Thursday’s action came as San Diego County officials have turned to giving property owners 10 days to cease illegal business operations — namely, unpermitted medical marijuana dispensaries — or face losing access to their buildings.
A few weeks ago, the county had served a 10-day abatement notice on OG Holistics. And on May 2, the place was found abandoned — in compliance with the notice, the sheriff’s department said.
But the next day, the dispensary was back up and running, according to the sheriff’s department.
That led to the the second abatement warrant.
After the raid, county code enforcement workers boarded up the doors and put a fence around the building. The sheriff’s department said it will arrest anyone caught on the property.
