Details of pot arrests linked to raids of medical marijuana shops last year may be released Monday

Arrests were made Friday

DENVER - Suspects arrested under a sealed indictment last week will be in federal court Monday afternoon. Department of Justice spokesman Jeff Dorschner confirmed the hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. in courtroom A-401 of the Arraj Federal Courthouse.

Further details about the charges are not yet available, but some of the information could soon be released. What is known is that the arrests are related to last year's raids of Colorado medical marijuana businesses.

The arrests were made Friday but federal prosecutors wouldn't release their names or describe the nature of the case. They said they were a part of a sealed indictment that could become public Monday.

At least one owner of a Colorado medical marijuana business raided by federal agents last year was among those arrested and another has been indicted.

Federal authorities in November raided more than a dozen sites, many of them in Denver and Boulder, confiscating piles of marijuana plants and cartons of cannabis-infused drinks and edibles.
