DATE/TIME: November 2, 2023 and November 8, 2023, at approximately 6:10 p.m. 

INCIDENT: Possession of Cannabis for Sale, Sale of Cannabis and Trespassing 

LOCATION: 10000 block of Cedar Ave., Bloomington (Bloomington Meds) 

SUSPECT(S): Miguel Melgoza, 41-year-old resident of Corona  
Aris Mehrparvar, 36-year-old resident of Lake Elsinore 
Joslyn Givens, 24-year-old-resident of Colton and 
Xandriah Jefferson, 25-year-old resident of Victorville 

VICTIM(S): State of California 

SUMMARY: On Tuesday, November 2, 2023, deputies from the Fontana Station served a search warrant, in partnership 
with the California Cannabis Control Agency, at the location due to illegal activity involving illegal possession and sales of cannabis. Multiple narcotics and cash were taken as evidence as a result of the search warrant.

The building in the middle of a tire shop used to sell cannabis was red tagged, condemned, secured and posted by the County of San 

Six days later, on November 8, 2023, deputies observed subjects entering the condemned building and conducted a business 
check. Deputies discovered multiple subjects inside the same building involved in selling and possessing cannabis without permits or authorization to be inside the building.

Deputies detained all subjects and authored another search warrant to 
recover narcotics and money gained from the illegal sale of cannabis. 

At the conclusion of the investigation, a large amount of cannabis, wax, hash gummies, psilocybin mushroom gummies, THC vapes, pre-packaged cannabis bags, miscellaneous narcotic paraphernalia, and cash were recovered. Deputies arrested four suspects, identified as Miguel Melgoza, Aris Mehrparvar, Joslyn Givens and Xandriah Jefferson.

The building was red tagged, condemned, secured and posted once again.  

Deputies will continue to conduct proactive patrols in the area and will arrest subjects who disobey the posted warnings. Business owners and residents in the community expressed appreciation for taking this proactive approach. They have noticed a great reduction in vehicle, foot traffic and drug related crimes since the shop has been shut down.
