Beverly Hills Police Help Bust Pot Ring

Three Los Angeles residents were arrested Monday and four marijuana dispensaries searched in connection with an alleged conspiracy involving large-scale cannabis sales.

The operation was the culmination of a four-year federal-state investigation into an organized criminal enterprise that distributed marijuana throughout the United States and employed gang members as enforcers, according to an alert from the Beverly Hills Police Department’s Lt. Lincoln Hoshino.
