EPD seize 400 lbs of marijuana from Pellegrini warehouse

1 min read

Evening Dog-walkers and residents of Blue Star Corner couldn’t help but become a little suspicious of the corner unit of the Pelligrini Warehouse on Halleck. The evening flow of traffic and clientele indicated that this space was either being used as a band practice space … or something slightly less “innocent”. Some neighbors reportedly even noticed a distinct odor. Our suspicions were confirmed on Thursday AM as EPD vehicles staged a raid on the area seizing 400 pounds of marijuana. It’s unclear if this space was being used to actually grow or merely as a distribution center for a larger operation. The Secret News provides more details including the fact that suspected occupants claimed it was being used as a skateboard manufacturing shop when confronted. It should be noted that no reports of any violent crime or other violence have been associated with the space and it’s unclear if the product was being used for “medicinal purposes” compliant with Prop 215. | abc7news.com »
