Metro Police say they arrested six people Tuesday night after officers raided an alleged marijuana dispensary and found about five pounds of marijuana and more than 22 plants.

Two owners of Jolly Green Meds, Sean Kinshella, 29, and Daniel Kinshella, 50; and employees Christine Kinshella, 24, Kimberly Simons, 26, Jesse Moffett, 33, and Ryan Bondhus, 27, were arrested in connection with counts of felony sale of marijuana, conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and maintaining a place for sale of a controlled substance, Lt. Laz Chavez said.

Sean and Daniel Kinshella are being being held in the Clark County Detention Center on $58,000 bail. Christine Kinshella is being held on $32,000 bail, Simons is being held on $39,000 bail and Bondhus is being held on $3,000 bail.

Chavez said police began the raid at 6:30 p.m. at the business, 7710 W. Sahara Ave., and initially detained 11 people.

Chavez said the business allegedly sold food products laced with THC, including butter and peanut butter, and operated a delivery service.

Police said they found nearly a pound of hash oil, a potent Cannabis that's sometimes as high as 80 percent pure THC. The 351 grams recovered at the store are worth about $21,000, Chavez said.

“They’re very overt about this,” Chavez said. “They just sell to whoever; they’re just in it for the money.”

Chavez said police will work with Clark County business licensing on having the business’s license revoked.

Chavez said authorities are not targeting patients -- only those running the businesses.
