Two arrested at marijuana dispensary

Kern County Sheriff's deputies arrested a felon and a man on parole at a Rosamond marijuana dispensary Friday.

At 2:07 p.m. Friday, deputies served a search warrant at the dispensary in the 1700 block of Sierra Highway in Rosamond. They found and arrested Adam Rivera, 31, of Tehachapi, who was an employee there and had an active warrant for his arrest for allegedly being a felon in possession of a firearm, deputies said.

They located David Peralta, 40, of Tehachapi, (also known as David Valencia) inside the business, deputies said. He was on parole.

Authorities said they found more than 200 rounds of ammunition and a safe containing three firearms -- a pistol grip 12-gauge breaching shotgun, a Sig Sauer .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol, and an FN 5.7 X 28 semi-automatic pistol.

Both pistols were registered to Peralta, deputies said.

Peralta and Rivera were both arrested and taken to the Kern County Jail. They were both booked in on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, as well as participation in a criminal street gang.
