Santa Ana cops charged with eating cookies, smashing cameras in pot-shop raid
Three police officers from Santa Ana, California were charged yesterday for smashing surveillance equipment and eating marijuana edibles during the raid of the Sky High dispensary in May, 2015. Two of the officers, Jorge Arroyo and Nicole Lynn Quijas are facing a maximum of six months in jail and $1,000 fine—and officer Brandon Matthew Sontag is looking at 18 months in jail and a $2,000 fine for petty theft and a misdemeanor vandalism count for smashing the cameras.
Now, the DA's office stated yesterday that the edibles were actually Mrs. Thinster's cookies and Detour protein bars which they had taken from the employee break room and that there was no evidence to show any officers had ingested edibles—though an attorney for the dispensary stands by allegations that the officers did eat them stating that just because some were consuming regular food products does not mean they were -not- consuming edibles. Arraignment for the three officers is scheduled for April 11—until then, they have been placed on paid administrative leave.
