Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 16th 2012 by THCFinder
Federal agents executed search warrants on two locations in Coos Bay this morning.
Special Agent Jodie Underwood said the warrants — which were served at South Cost Compassion Coalition and Anthony’s Garden and Lighting Supply — were marijuana related.
The undercover operation is part of an ongoing investigation that involved the IRS and numerous state and local agencies.
Underwood said the operation is run by the DEA, and agents had been at both locations for “several hours.”
On its website, SCCC says it is a nonprofit organization that helps people in the medical marijuana community.
“While providing necessary medical relief, our goal also is to promote local help, support and provide care services to our elderly and less fortunate, because we believe we need to give to those that need help most,” the website states.
SCCC also says on the site that they are not advocates for the legalization of marijuana.
Anthony’s Garden and Lighting Supply is a hydroponics supply store that sells grow lights and nutrients, among other materials.
Underwood said the search warrants were federal warrants and agents should be continuing to investigate throughout the afternoon.
