Sheriff's Office: Man arrested for drug operation

SOLVANG, Calif. -

A Solvang man is in custody on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale.

On Tuesday at about 6:15 p.m., Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office Deputies went to the 1500 block of Acorn Way to investigate a noise complaint.

When deputies arrived, they contacted 53-year-old Alan Pugliese, who was with two boys.
 
Deputies said they conducted a search of his apartment, and they found significant quantities of marijuana, hash oil, THC pills, THC-laced chocolate bars, syringes with hash oil, THC-infused bottled lemonade and hash oil candied taffy.

THC is the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high.

Many of the items were packaged for resale and commercially labeled, the Sheriff's Office said.

A sheriff's narcotics detective found Pugliese was not in compliance with California state law relating to medical marijuana.

Pugliese was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on $20,000 bail.
