Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Six Arrested in San Diego Drug Busts

SAN DIEGO — In a series of drug busts over the past three days, authorities in San Diego have arrested six individuals and seized large quantities of narcotics. The first investigation, which began in October, concluded on Thursday with the seizure of 60,000 counterfeit fentanyl pills, 5,000 ecstasy pills, nearly 9 pounds of cocaine, and five pounds of methamphetamine. Two suspects, identified as Edith Gonzalez-Ramirez and Edwin Valles, have been taken into custody and are facing charges related to narcotics trafficking.

The second investigation was launched in response to reports of illegal dispensaries operating in close proximity to schools and residential areas. The substances in question, Delta-8 THC and Delta-10 THC, are dangerous synthetics that have been linked to hospitalizations and deaths, according to national Poison Control Centers.

Multiple law enforcement agencies executed search warrants on November 28th and 29th at six locations across San Diego County. The investigations led to the following discoveries:

– Canably, located at 2971 India Street in the Middletown neighborhood, is suspected of selling and distributing cannabis and cannabis products within 1,000 feet of a school and residential areas. Further investigation revealed that the owners of Canably were operating a similar business from their home on Bamburgh Drive, where authorities found 300 pounds of loose cannabis, 5,400 edibles, 13,900 concentrates, and a significant amount of cash. Two suspects, Jose Delahoz and Valeria Rada, were arrested on charges of child endangerment and drug-related offenses.

– Elevated Smoke Shop, situated at 1570 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach, was found to be operating within 1,000 feet of Pacific Beach Middle School. During the search, law enforcement seized a loaded ghost gun, 331 loose cannabis pre-rolls, and 426 concentrates. The owner’s residence on 14th Street in East Village was also searched, resulting in the discovery of additional evidence, including an unregistered handgun.

– BestBudz smoke shop, located at 10010 Campo Road in Spring Valley, was found to possess 500 pounds of cannabis products. Pedro Delahoz and Diego Delahoz were subsequently arrested on suspicion of drug offenses related to the investigation.

Lt. Adam Sharki of the San Diego Police Department emphasized that the State of California strictly regulates the sale of cannabis and cannabis-derived products. Businesses are required to comply with specific licensing and regulatory requirements. The selling of cannabis to minors, selling illegal synthetics, and possessing firearms are all criminal acts under state law.

Authorities are urging anyone with information about these cases to contact the San Diego Police Department or Crime Stoppers to provide anonymous tips.
