4 Arrested In Undercover Sting At Colorado Springs Business

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Four people have been arrested after an undercover detective purchased marijuana at a business that isn’t licensed to sell the drug.

Colorado Springs said police seized three pounds of marijuana and prescription drugs from a business called Room to Grow. The undercover officer told those working there that he intended to sell the pot in other states. It’s illegal to take medical marijuana out of Colorado for resale.

The following people were arrested: Joshua Heney, Brandon Beene, Bradly Sweany and Justin Sargent.

Earlier this week the federal government said it will not sue Colorado for legalizing marijuana. But the government said it will crack down on the distribution of pot in states where it is not legal.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated incorrectly that Room to Grow was a medical marijuana dispensary.
