RIVERSIDE COUNTY – On December 1, 2020, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control’s Enforcement Unit served a multi-location search warrant concerning an unlicensed cannabis delivery service based in Riverside County.
The Riverside County District Attorney's Office’s Cannabis Regulatory Taskforce, Riverside County Sheriff's Department, California Department of Tax and Fee Administration, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation K9 Unit assisted the Cannabis Enforcement Unit with the service of three search warrants.
Investigators were looking into the illegal cannabis delivery organization known as Honey Budz/Alien Broccoli, resulting in the identification of the suspects, operational locations, and a fleet of delivery vehicles owned by the illegal cannabis delivery service. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of cannabis flower, edibles, vape cartridges and concentrates with an estimated retail value of more than $700,000. Additionally, investigators seized more than $500,000 in cash.
“Cannabis business operators must comply with California law,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “BCC investigators are working to protect the public as well as licensed businesses as they serve these types of search warrants.”
