Posted by Damian Kelly on Nov 1, 2012 - 11:59:53 AM

WOODLAND HILLS—A raid of a medical dispensary and a residence on Tuesday, October 30 for illegal drug sales has resulted in the arrests of two men.  A stash of narcotics, money, guns, and other evidence was also seized by detectives.

At approximately 2 p.m., members of the Topanga Area Narcotics Enforcement Detail arrived at the commercial marijuana dispensary in the 19900 block of Ventura Boulevard to serve a search warrant.  Then at 3 p.m., detectives arrived at the dispensary owner’s house in the 14700 block of Valleyheart Drive to serve another search warrant.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department blog, Gennady Tikhonov, 54, of Sherman Oaks and Vyacheslav Bugakov, 39, of North Hollywood were arrested after an investigation was conducted on illegal sales of marijuana from the dispensary.  The two suspects were arrested on charges of Possession for Sales of Marijuana and booked at the Valley Jail Section in Van Nuys where they are being held on $20,000 bail.

In addition to recovering cash from the dispensary, about one pound of hashish with an estimated street value of $4,500 and 17 pounds of dried marijuana with an estimated value of $51,000 were seized by police.  A handgun was also recovered from the dispensary while two more were discovered at the owner’s residence.  Sophisticated hydroponic marijuana grows that contained almost 200 mature marijuana plants were also discovered at both locations.

Anyone with further information about this case is being asked to contact Detective Carlos Figueira of the Topanga Area Narcotics Detail at (818) 756-4850.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to (877) 527-3247.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477. Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to, click on "WebTips," and follow the prompts.
