(CNS) - San Diego law enforcement leaders said Tuesday they're stepping up efforts to close illegal marijuana dispensaries following a rash of citizen complaints and the discovery of weapons at a shop in the Mount Hope neighborhood.
Prosecutors allege that the cocaine and handguns were discovered at the dispensary, and ammunition was loaded in two of the firearms. The U.S. Attorneys Office said one of the men taken into custody, Floyd Lyntellis Garrett, was indicted on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Garrett, 42, has previous convictions for attempted murder, armed robbery and battery on a police officer, prosecutors said.
The defendant, who is being held in federal custody without bail, faces life in prison if convicted. Hell next appear at the U.S. District Courthouse on Jan. 5.
