Two people were arrested and charged Tuesday with operating an illegal marijuana delivery service in the city of San Diego, police said.
Fardin Esmaeili, 28, was arrested along with his employee around 8 a.m. at a residence in the 9600 block Saskatchewan Avenue, San Diego police Lt. Matt Novak said.
The home was illegally being used a marijuana delivery service called Leaf Life, he said. A search of the home found a stash 50 pounds of high-grade marijuana, edibles, concentrated cannabis and $3,500 cash.
Police also confiscated business documents and records, Novak said.
Esmaeili was booked into jail while his employee was cited and released. Both were charged with operating a business without a license and sales of marijuana. Additionally, Esmaeili was also charged with child endangerment because he has two young children living with him and exposed to marijuana products, Novak said.
The San Diego Police Department and the City Attorney’s Office will continue to crack down on all illegal marijuana businesses, including delivery services, in city limits, he said.
“All persons operating and working for any of these illegal marijuana businesses will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Novak said.
