Shave, haircut, and a dime bag

Well, my neighborhood makes the news yet again. Grrrrr. I'm curious to know whether the owner's business license will be revoked.

Here is the story (and photo) from KTLA.com:

Pomona Barbershop Owner Arrested for Selling Marijuana

Police say they found bags of marijuana inside the shop owner's car.

POMONA -- The owner of a barbershop in Pomona has been arrested for selling marijuana to customers along with haircuts, police said.

Marlon T. Singleton, 39, of Rancho Cucamonga, who owns Groom Time Barber Shop at 924 E. Holt Ave., was arrested around 10 a.m. Monday, according to Pomona police Sgt. Chuck Becker.

Officers smelled marijuana coming from Singleton's car parked behind the shop.

They searched the car and found 35 grams of individually packaged marijuana bags inside, Becker said.

  1. Isn't this the same place a barber was shot at a year ago or so? This place is known as a front for drugs as well, at least I remember hearing that when the shooting incident happened.
