Two men sold marijuana out of liquor store in Jackson, police say

By Bill Lindelof

Two liquor store clerks have been arrested on suspicion of selling more than booze.

Mandpreet Singh Ghuane and Geoffrey Scott Maciel were arrested on suspicion of selling and possessing marijuana. The men were arrested at the Bottle Shop, 45 Main St., in Jackson, Amador County, last week.

State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control investigators went undercover in recent months to develop information that led to the arrests, according to a department press release. Investigators allege they were able to make purchases of marijuana from the employees at the liquor store several times.
