Four area residents, and two others, have been arrested on various charges including possession of marijuana for sale following a three-month investigation by El Dorado County law enforcement.

El Dorado County Sheriff’s detectives served several search warrants April 4 in relation to an investigation into two area businesses believed to be selling marijuana.

The businesses in question were River City Wellness, also known as Right Choice Wellness, in Cameron Park, and C4C in Shingle Springs, officials said.

Both businesses are reportedly operated by David Sisson.

Sisson, 45, of El Dorado was arrested and booked into the El Dorado County Jail on suspicion of conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to Lt. Tim Becker of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department.

Sisson’s wife, 44-year-old Stacy Sisson, also of El Dorado, was booked on charges of suspicion of conspiracy to possess marijuana for sale.

Approximately 60 pounds of processed marijuana were seized at the businesses when search warrants were served, Becker said.

Sisson’s 34-year-old brother Robert Sisson, of Shingle Springs, was booked on charges of suspicion of conspiracy to sell marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale.

An employee of the business, Mathew Wollman, 29, of Sacramento, was arrested and booked for being in possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle.

Austin Lange, 26, of Cameron Park was arrested on charges of conspiracy to sell marijuana.

In an odd twist, while detectives were serving a search warrant at one of the locations, a Santa Cruz man stopped in to reportedly sell marijuana.

James Dungan, 50, was arrested “on the spot” by detectives on charges of possession of marijuana for sale.

A few Cameron Park residents were surprised to learn that local businesses were selling marijuana.

“I had no idea there were shops like that up here,” said Susan Kremer. “This is a small town, you’d think it would be more evident.”

Harold Sizemore was also shocked.

“How can we have places that sell that here and not know about it?” “We should have known about that before the places opened.”
