San Luis Obispo police arrested a man on suspicion of illegally operating a cannabis delivery service.

Police reportedly served a search warrant Tuesday at a home in the 2900 block of Rockview Place after receiving information that a resident was transporting and selling large quantities of marijuana.

Investigators say they found more than 10,000 cannabis products and several thousand dollars in cash. Police believe the products were fraudulently packaged to appear that they were legal, lab-tested cannabis products.

Officers arrested Josephus Stallworth, 40. Police say he did not have the proper permits to sell marijuana.

He was reportedly booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail with bail set at $25,000. A check of jail records Thursday showed that he was no longer in custody.
