Law enforcement raided the Pacific Coast Collective marijuana dispensary on 331 North Milpas Street at approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. According to unconfirmed reports, two volunteers were working at the dispensary when agents entered with guns drawn. The law enforcement officials locked up the building and confiscated supplies. One source claimed that the police said they will raid other dispensaries today.

Santa Barbara police spokesperson Riley Harwood confirmed that a federal search warrant was executed this morning. Thom Mrozek of the U.S. Department of Justice said that Drug Enforcement Agency officers were on the scene. He did not know how many. The warrant, he said, gave authorization for agents to “search the premises and see certain items.” No arrests were made.
