Furnishing Marijuana to Minors
Submitted By Sgt. Raj Maharaj, Milpitas PD
On August 26, 2011 at approximately 10:44 p.m., a caller reported seeing several male subjects at the rear of Great Jump Sports, 616 South Main Street in Milpitas, smoking what they believed to be marijuana. Milpitas Police officers arrived at the location at 10:48 p.m. and contacted two minors and 19 year-old Milpitas resident, Gueorgui Gueorguiev. During the course of the investigation, an officer located a backpack containing marijuana and discovered the backpack belonged to Gueorguiev.
Gueorguiev produced a medical marijuana card, exempting him from the laws pertaining to illegal possession of marijuana. The subsequent investigation revealed Gueorguiev was furnishing the marijuana he had for his own medicinal use to the juvenile subjects, a violation of the California Health and Safety Code. Based on the investigation, Gueorguiev was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for furnishing marijuana to minors. Gueorguiev's marijuana was seized as evidence.
