LAPD serves search warrant on Venice pot dispensary
Los Angeles police were serving a search warrant Monday night at a medical marijuana dispensary in Venice.
At least half a dozen police cars were at the S.O.S. dispensary in the 300 block of Lincoln Boulevard near Rose Avenue while officers served the warrant, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The dispensary opened several months ago.
A helicopter was flying overhead, shining a powerful light on the business. Several people were detained in the investigation, said Officer Karen Rayner.
The warrant was first reported on Twitter by Venice 311. No other details were immediately available.
