Police raided an illegal medical marijuana dispensary in El Monte on Friday morning and arrested a Santa Ana man, authorities said.

The bust took place about 10 a.m. at the dispensary, 10755 Lower Azusa Road, Unit J, El Monte police Sgt. Roger Cobian said.

The investigation began, "in response to an anonymous complaint about a possible illegal marijuana dispensary," Cobian said in a written statement. "An illegal marijuana dispensary was located in operation in a nondescript unmarked strip mall business."

Police arrested Brian Kom, 29, of Santa Ana, at the scene, according to police and Los Angeles County booking records. He was booked on suspicion of violating the city's municipal code barring medical marijuana dispensaries.

Police seized an undisclosed amount of marijuana, concentrated cannabis and pot-laced food products, Cobian said.

"Over 100 customers have frequented the business for the purposes of purchasing marijuana and/or marijuana products over the last week," the sergeant added.

According to booking records, Kom was released with a citation pending his initial court appearance.
