Big Pot Bust in Isla Vista

UCSB police officers discovered 14 pounds of marijuana and $14,000 in the Isla Vista residence of 22-year-old Donovan Christensen. UCSB police officers had initially arrested Christensen for public intoxication, according to a university police press release, but later obtained a search warrant for his residence located on the 6500 block of Segovia Road after finding evidence he was allegedly selling drugs. Christensen was rebooked in the County Jail and charged with possessing and transporting marijuana for sale.
