San Luis Obispo police arrested three men on Wednesday in connection with a discovery of more than 13 pounds of marijuana and $2,500 at a local residence.

Police officers, with the assistance of the county’s Narcotic Task Force, arrested Steven Richey of Biggs, Calif., and Spencer Anderson of San Luis Obispo after officers determined they were in possession of a large amount of marijuana, according to a news release.

Officers later served a search warrant at 1415 Stafford St., where they found the 13 pounds of marijuana, with an estimated street value of $80,000.

Richey, 25, and Anderson, 20, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy, transportation and sales of marijuana, and possession of marijuana for sale, police said. Thomas Graham, 22, of Ridley, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and transportation of marijuana.

All were booked at County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail; none of the men remained there Friday.
