BUELLTON, Calif. - An 18-year-old driver has been arrested after being suspected of operating a pot delivery service in Buellton, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office.

It happened when the driver was pulled over speeding and a deputy noticed an open container of marijuana in the car, the sheriff's office said.

The deputy also found the driver had a large amount of marijuana without a valid cannabis license.

Detectives conducted an investigation finding that the driver had operated several unlicensed cannabis delivery services in different parts of Santa Barbara County, the sheriff's office said.

They also found about $7,600 worth of cash and two unlicensed guns.
