The City Attorney's Office obtained a court order to shut down an illegal marijuana dispensary operating in La Mesa, in violation of La Mesa Municipal Code.
According to the attorney's office, Herbal Trust was running an illegal pot business at the 6000 block of University Avenue.
Within ten days, the business must allow City officials and the La Mesa Police Department to begin shutting down the store, stated the court order.
Citizens and businesses around the area have filed numerous complaints for excessive noise, littering, illegal marijuana smoking in public and drug paraphernalia being left near a preschool, said Glenn Sabine, the La Mesa City Attorney.
This marks the 15th illegal marijuana dispensary that the City has shut down in the last few years, according to the attorney's office.
Sabine says the City will continue to aggressively target illegal pot shops operating in La Mesa.
