SPRING VALLEY, Calif. (KGTV) -- Complaints from neighbors and nearby businesses prompted the San Diego County Sheriff's Department to serve a search warrant Sunday on an illegal cannabis dispensary in Spring Valley.
The warrant was served about 9 a.m. on the Green Room, in the 9000 block of Olive Drive, according to sheriff's officials.
Deputies arrested a felon, 34-year-old Freddie Tyson, for possession of a handgun. It is illegal for a felon to own a handgun in California, the department reported.
Deputies also seized more than 400 pounds of marijuana and $3,500 in cash, the department reported.
The county's Code Compliance Team will visit the site to ensure a complete shutdown of the facility.
The County Board of Supervisors recently allocated $500,000 to help with enforcement of unlicensed marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated San Diego County.
