A Medical Marijuana Clinic Owner is under Arrest NR10042kr

Los Angeles:  The owner of three “medical marijuana” clinics has been arrested for Possession of Marijuana for Sales.

On January 27, 2010, at around 1 PM, Devonshire Area Narcotics Enforcement Detail, along with fifty additional officers from West Valley Area, North Hollywood Area, Topanga Area and Van Nuys Area Narcotics Units, served four search warrants simultaneously at three medical marijuana businesses and one residence belonging to Richard Khoury.

Khoury, 30-years of age, owns Alternative Care Collective (ACC) located in the 8500 block of Reseda Boulevard, 420 Discount Collective (420) located in the 5600 block of Kester Avenue, and Encino Discount Collective (EDC),  also known as The Coffee Joint, located in the15800 block of Ventura Boulevard.  His residence is located in the 16400 block of Rinaldi Street.

The investigation was launched in response to citizen complaints that marijuana was being smoked and sold to juveniles in the area of the ACC.  Evidence recovered at the four locations shows that Khoury is involved in retail sales of marijuana, Hashish, and food and drinks containing marijuana.

Khoury is being held at Devonshire Jail on $100,000 bail.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Devonshire Narcotics Enforcement Detectives at 818-832-1131.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
