A police officer arrested a young woman for the sale of marijuana in a church parking lot adjacent to San Benito High School Friday.
An 18-year-old Hollister resident was arrested for possession of marijuana for sale and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the Hollister Police Department.
At about 3:15 p.m. Officer Juan Guevara was dispatched to the parking lot of a church on the 1600 block of Cienega Road to investigate a suspicious car and “possible drug activity,” according to an announcement from the HPD.
Guevara arrived and contacted four young adults and two juveniles. There was an odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle, and the suspect admitted to possessing marijuana.
The juveniles at the scene were subsequently released to their parents and three adults were released without charges at this time. The suspect was transported to the San Benito County Jail. Additional charges including conducting sales within 1000 feet of a school are pending.
The officer discovered packaging containing “edibles” which were similar to the popular cereal “Fruit Loops” that were allegedly infused with THC, which is the chemical most responsible for marijuana’s psychological effects. He also discovered packaging containing what resembled rock candy, which was also infused with either THC or hash oil, which is produced by extracting the cannabinoids from the plant material.
This drug sales investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Officer Juan Guevara at 636-4330. Persons wishing to remain anonymous can call the WeTip Hotline at 800-87-CRIME. Information provided to WeTip may qualify for a reward.
