Suspect Arrested In Holly Medical Marijuana Dispensary Bust


Recommended Posts

HOLLY — A 31-year old Keego Harbor man was jailed after members of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Team (NET) raided Holly’s sole medical marijuana dispensary, Well Greens, on Thursday afternoon, seizing marijuana, cash, guns and other drug paraphernalia in two separate raids.

 

The suspect is believed to be the owner of Well Greens.

 

According to Undersheriff Mike McCabe, his agency was contacted by Holly Police Chief Mike Story last week, indicating that he had information of possible illegal activities going on at the Hamilton Plaza dispensary.

 

After purchasing marijuana at Well Greens on two separate occasions, McCabe said detectives had enough evidence to issue three separate search warrants — one at the Well Greens facility, and the other two at the suspect’s residence in Keego Harbor.

 

McCabe said the suspect was arrested at the dispensary, and that 11-ounces of marijuana and nearly $800 in cash were recovered during the raid. A search warrant for the Keego Harbor home was originally issued so that officers could search for documents pertaining to the business. A third search warrant was later obtained by NET detectives after making entry into the home and discovering narcotics. Nobody was home at the time of the raid, McCabe said. McCabe said the Keego Harbor Police Department assisted in the raid.

 

“They seized $900 in cash, three pounds of marijuana, eight handguns and a large quantity of assorted ammunition, a set of brass knuckles, over 20 vials of anabolic steroids along with 50 steroid syringes, and several vials of unknown clear liquids and chemicals,” McCabe said, adding that it had been submitted to the Sheriff's Office Forensic Crime Lab for analysis.

 

The suspect is currently lodged in the Oakland County Jail and is awaiting arraignment on Saturday for possession with intent to distribute (PWID) marijuana, possession of anabolic steroids, felony firearm, and possession of a dangerous weapon (brass knuckles).

 

McCabe credited Story for tipping off the Narcotics Enforcement Team.

 

“We continue to have a great working relationship with Chief Story and the entire Holly Police Department,” McCabe said. “The entire department is to be commended — they do a great job.

I would think if you are running a dispensary, compassion club, or farmer's market, you would do it by the book. You would have to know that the fuzz is just waiting for you to do something stupid...... like this.

 

And you can bet your bottom dollar this case will be used as an example by Bill Schuette and Rick Jones once the legal approved dispenseries begin to take form and could possibly help them stop them from becoming a reality altogether .

Agreed 100%. Between this and the Danny Travino escapades earlier in the week, plenty of negative bullet points for the news and the antagonists to the movement.
