Police: Woman sold medical pot to minor

A 19-year-old woman was arrested after Irvine police watched her sell medicinal marijuana bought from a Costa Mesa dispensary, police said.

Irvine police said they learned of the woman when a concerned parent notified authorities that she was allegedly selling marijuana to high school students.

Irvine detectives began surveillance of Yvette Ordaz, and watched her pick up pot at the Marijuana County Collective on Redhill Avenue in Costa Mesa, they said.

According to police, officers watched Ordaz sell the drug to two adult men and then meet a 16-year-old high school student at a gas station convenience store to make a third transaction.

Police arrested Ordaz at the scene. The minor was issued a citation and released to his parents. The other clients also received citations for possession of marijuana, police said.

Ordaz was booked at Orange County Jail on charges of transportation and sales of marijuana, and a third charge for selling marijuana to a minor. She has since been released.
