TOPEKA (KSNT) – Police are searching a business that brands itself as a recreational cannabis dispensary in Topeka on a commonly known marijuana holiday.
Photos sent to KSNT 27 News showed Topeka police entering and searching Guardian Recreational Cannabis Dispensary Wednesday, April 20. A KSNT 27 News reporter saw officers coming in and out of the business at 3124 SW 29th St. Suite 10, and taking someone into custody.
The website for Guardian Recreational Cannabis Dispensary, or Guardian MMJ as it is also known, advertises itself as a recreational cannabis dispensary with THC products like “buds, edibles, nano shots, gummies, dank-tanks and moon-rock.”
As many as five to six officers went inside the building at 12:40 p.m., according to the reporter at the scene. KSNT 27 News has reached out to Shawnee County dispatchers and the Topeka Police Department, who could not provide an explanation of the search or why they detained someone. However, a TPD lieutenant at the scene did give a statement.
“A search warrant was conducted on the business earlier today. There is an active investigation and a media release will be put out later,” said Lieutenant Ronnie Connell .
