PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man was arrested after police served a search warrant on a bogus medical marijuana dispensary in Phoenix.

Police said the location in the 12400 block of N. 28th Drive wasn't licensed or zoned for the sale of medical marijuana.

Aaron Mullins, 21, was booked into jail on one count of illegal control of an enterprise and one count of marijuana-possession for sale.

One of the suspects told police he was paid in cash and that he would write a receipt under the name Electric Spliff, a small electronic cigarette business he once operated at his home.

The officer investigating the scene found several receipts documenting deposits into a couple of different bank accounts at two different banks. One of the deposits for $1,200 was made earlier in the day, just a couple hours before entering the business.

Mullins told the officer he was not in charge of the dispensary and wasn't sure who was.
