San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Marijuana
Enforcement Team Serves Warrant in Victorville
San Bernardino County Sheriff, January 6, 2017 ____
Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team Investigators
and San Bernardino County Sheriff Victor
Valley Deputies served a search warrant at 13108 Camellia Road in
Victorville, Thursday January 5, 2017at 3:45 P.M. Arrested were property owners, Johnny
Salazar and David Jones.
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. Salazar and Jones were identified as
the primary suspects and were present at the location when the search was
conducted. Both were arrested for the illegal sales of marijuana and operating
an illegal marijuana dispensary.
A case will also be investigated by the San
Bernardino County Land Use Services - 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 investigation. This information will be
sent to the Code Enforcement Division for follow up investigation.
The illegal marijuana dispensary was discovered several weeks ago by
investigators. Several complaints made by local residents in the immediate area
were made to officials. A preliminary check into the business showed there were
no licenses or permits issued by officials. The small operation was set up in
the back yard of a residence with other residences in the immediate area.
Evidence gathered during the investigation suggests the two suspects in charge
and working at the location were 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 in the
unincorporated areas of the county.
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 review the
case and decide on what, if any, criminal charges will be filed against the
owner(s) may face civil and/or criminal charges at a later date. Johnny Salazar
and David Jones were arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the
