Four men face charges after a pot dispensary was busted in Sarnia.

Members of the Provincial Joint Forces Cannabis Enforcement Team of the OPP and city police executed search warrants on Thursday, June 6.

Police said dried cannabis, cannabis concentrates, tools, electronics, cash and weapons were seized.

While provincial police have not specified where the bust occurred, it’s believed to have taken place at the “Pot of Gold Medicals and Edibles” site in the 1800 block of St. Clair Parkway.

The dispensary was raided twice previously in the fall of 2018.

Jeremy Carey, 34, Marc Henderson, 27, both of Sarnia, and Christopher Lagrone, 37, of Windsor are charged with possession for the purpose of distribution and selling.

A Petrolia man, 36-year-old Kyle Mansfield, is charged with proceeds of crime under $5,000 and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Police said the four accused have been released and are scheduled to appear in Sarnia court at a later date.

The OPP said it’s continuing to lead an enforcement strategy on illegal cannabis operations that includes other Ontario police services.
