A man who was among 10 people arrested in 2012 for unlawfully growing and selling marijuana at a medical-marijuana-themed business was sentenced to probation this week.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Kenneth Lee sentenced Roberto Tapia to two years' probation after Tapia pleaded guilty to facilitation of the transfer of marijuana for sale.

Tapia was one of the people associated with Shop 420, which police raided in September 2012. Police raided all five Shop 420 stores in Tucson and Casa Grande.

At the time of the arrests, Tucson police said 14 pounds of hydroponically grown marijuana and 25 pounds of marijuana hard candy were taken from the stores. Police said the drugs were valued at about $50,000.

The company's website says it is a medical marijuana certification center, which assists people in obtaining medical marijuana cards, connecting people with physicians and providing education for those who want to grow their own medical marijuana.
