SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Federal agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in South Lake Tahoe on Thursday.
At about 11 a.m., five agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency — joined by members of the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, the South Lake Tahoe-El Dorado County Narcotics Enforcement Team and the South Lake Tahoe Police — served a federal search warrant on Patient to Patient Collective, located at 2314 Lake Tahoe Boulevard.
Agents seized between five and 10 pounds of processed marijuana and a "small amount" of U.S. currency from the collective, said DEA Special Agent Gordon Taylor.
Police made no arrests on Thursday.
Taylor declined to comment on additional details of the raid, saying Patient to Patient Collective is part of an ongoing investigation.
