Five arrests were made when search warrants were served on April 4 centered around the sale of marijuana at two businesses.

The three-month investigation into a conspiracy to sell marijuana looked at River City Wellness, also known as Right Choice Wellness, in Cameron Park and C4C Wellness in Shingle Springs. Both were operated by David Sisson, 45, of El Dorado, his wife Stacy, 44, and his 34-year-0ld brother Robert Sisson of Shingle Springs. A press release from Michael J. Wise of the Wise Law Group, stated that Right Choice Wellness is “a holistic wellness center providing multiple holistic services to their patients in addition to filling legal cannabis recommendations.” Search warrants were also served to the business operator’s home and two bank accounts.

David Sisson was arrested and booked into the county jail on charges of conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. His wife was booked on suspicion of conspiracy to possess marijuana for sale. Robert Sisson was booked for alleged conspiracy to sell marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale. Matthew Wollman, 29, of Sacramento, an employee of the business, was arrested and booked for alleged possession of a concealed weapon in a vehicle while employee Austin Lange, 26, of Cameron Park, was booked on a charge of conspiracy to sell marijuana.

James Dungan, 50, of Santa Cruz, approached one of the businesses while detectives were serving the warrants. He allegedly intended to sell processed marijuana to the business and was arrested on the spot by detectives for alleged possession of marijuana for sale.

About 60 pounds of processed marijuana was seized from the businesses during the service of the warrants. Nine firearms and about $80,000 in currency was seized, with more seizures expected.

“The Sisson family is devastated by the allegations that their conduct was criminal in nature. We are confident that when the entire story of this nonprofit cooperative is explained that law enforcement and the greater community will understand that Right Choice Wellness and Dave and Stacy Sisson were in compliance with all applicable local ordinances and state laws,” Wise’s press release stated. “As California struggles to define and clarify the law regarding legitimate cannabis use it is likely that these misconceptions will persist. David and Stacy Sisson are compassionate, hardworking people who have provided a great service to their members and patients in El Dorado County.”
