Spring Valley, California - On May 17, 2018 at 7:30 PM., the Rancho San Diego Crime Suppression Team (CST) and Station Detectives assisted Planning & Development Services with serving an abatement warrant at SD Best Meds marijuana dispensary, located at 9030 Campo Road in Spring Valley. The abatement warrant was the direct result of SD Best Meds owners violating San Diego County Zone Ordinance 6976. During the execution of the warrant, SD Best Meds was found abandoned and was properly secured by the County. Any person found inside the property after tonight will be arrested. Deputies did recover cash from inside the business. No arrests were made and the investigation is on-going.
As a public reminder, County departments are addressing illegal marijuana dispensaries in Spring Valley and other unincorporated areas of San Diego County by enforcing building code requirements involving illegal or improper occupancy in conjunction with the administrative abatement process. The County has begun serving illegal dispensaries with 10-day notices, ordering property owners to remove the illegal use.
If the violation is not removed and enforcement action is taken, the County will continue abatement proceedings and secure the property to ensure the building remains safe. Any person found inside the property after the County secures the building will be arrested.
The County anticipates continued compliance as we enforce the securing of structures without a permitted use.
