GOLETA, Calif. - The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Cannabis Compliance Team seized 3,000 pounds of illegally processed cannabis this week.
The compliance team investigated an area on the 5200 block of Shoreline Drive right outside of the City of Goleta on Monday.
This came after multiple complaints from numerous community members made to the County's Planning and Development Department as well as the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office.
During the investigation, detectives found the site was operated under an expired state temporary cannabis license and the operator continued to cultivate, harvest and sell cannabis illegally.
Detectives were not able to contact the operator of the site.
