Twelve people are arrested and thousands of marijuana plants seized in a crackdown on illegal marijuana sales at dispensaries in Santa Barbara County.
The Sheriff's Department and Santa Barbara Police Department teamed up to search four medical marijuana dispensaries Wednesday morning.
Two were in Santa Barbara, the others were in Goleta and Summerland. In all, both agencies seized more than 12,000 marijuana plants, more than 60 pounds of marijuana, hashish and edible drugs.
Twelve people were arrested after the four searches. That includes the owners of each of the dispensaries. They all face various charges including growing and possessing marijuana for sale, transporting marijuana and criminal conspiracy.
