Pomona barber arrested on suspicion of selling marijuana at his shop

That smell emanating from a 1993 Buick LeSabre parked behind the Groom Time barbershop in Pomona was not aftershave.

Pomona police had heard stories of possible narcotics sales at the shop, and a search of the white car Sunday turned up 35 grams of individually packaged marijuana bags, said Sgt. Chuck Becker of the Pomona Police Department.

Shop owner Marlon Singleton, 39, of Rancho Cucamonga was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to sell and held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Please!!! 35 Grams??? He's out of jail with $5,000. Police have nothing better to do.

Good to hear our tax dollars are hard at work arresting these extremely dangerous and violent criminals. Now the women and children can once again emerge from their houses, and life can continue on in our perfect, drug-free society, no longer afraid of the enormous, deadly threat of marijuana in a barber shop.

Why didn't he sell it to a dispensary? Maybe it wasn't good enough!

Asymmetrical hair styling?

"Looks good to me!"

That dude was a medicine man servicing his medicinal marijuwanna customers. What the poo-poo on him for.

I'd fire these cops for this waste of money.

Well, I now know how to vote in November when it comes to two things:

1.) I will vote YES on the legalization of marijuana.

2.) I will note NO on Pomona keeping its police department under local and nicely corrupt control.
