Santa Barbara narcotics detectives arrested 31-year-old Walter Stanley on Tuesday for allegedly cultivating marijuana to supply storefront dispensaries in the Los Angeles area.

They served a search warrant on Stanley’s house at 315 Stanley Drive and arrested him shortly after at a nearby traffic stop, said SBPD spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood. Detectives seized from Stanley’s home 80 marijuana plants, approximately five pounds of processed marijuana, approximately $2,000 in cash, and 25 shotgun shells.

“The plants, when fully mature, would have produced approximately $120,000 worth of marijuana,” said Harwood in a prepared statement. “The processed marijuana is worth approximately $1,500. These are estimates of the wholesale value that would have been paid by dispensary operators; the actual street value is much higher.”

Stanley was booked into County Jail for possession for sale of marijuana and cultivation of marijuana. Both are felonies. He was also charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, and his bail amount is $30,000.
