VICTORVILLE — During a recent search warrant, authorities arrested three suspects and seized a large amount of cannabis oil, processed marijuana and hundreds of infused candy products, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reported.
Shortly after 8 a.m. on Aug. 13, deputies from the Victorville Sheriff’s Station served the warrant in the 16000 block of Oak Court. Inside the home, authorities located concentrated cannabis oil, thousands of pounds of gummy bears and Nerds brand candy, the sheriff’s report said.
Authorities also found boxes full of THC medicated Nerds Rope packaging, which is nearly identical to the non-infused Nerds rope candy found in stores, authorities said.
The report said two small children were living inside the home and had access to the cannabis oil, candy residue and the THC-infused finished product.
Deputies determined the occupants of the home were mixing the candy with the cannabis oil to create a THC-infused product. It is believed the product was being sold to marijuana dispensaries throughout California and Nevada, the report said.
More than 500 packaged and sealed “Medicated Nerds Ropes” were seized from the home along with a large amount of concentrated cannabis oil and processed marijuana.
Suspects Stephanie Hon, 26, Atiba Moss, 28 and Quartain Denorytaquaein, 28, all from Victorville, were arrested during the incident, the report said.
Hon was arrested for child cruelty and possession of marijuana for sales. Moss and Denorytaquaein were arrested for possession of marijuana for sales. All three were booked at High Desert Detention Center, the sheriff’s report said.
