Pastor and L.A. Field Deputy Faced with Owning Property of Weed Shop and Tax Evasion

A pastor named Bishop Edward R. Turner of Los Angeles was recently dismissed from his position with the sheriff’s department as a top aid. The department discovered he owns a property in South Los Angeles that houses a medical marijuana shop.

Bishop Edward R. Turner worked as a field deputy for L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca for over ten years. He also served as the head of the department’s Multi-Faith Clergy Council but they found out the wee shop directly across the street from his Power of Love Christian Fellowship ministries and church.

Report says:

The city has been on a slow mission to close the clinics that do not fit the voter-approved criteria passed by Proposition D.

Turner got caught in the middle when they noticed he was a part of the mission.

That’s not all he’s been charged with.

Turner is also being investigated for his involvement in the Helping Our People Excel for Life Foundation, a nonprofit community group that had its charity status recently revoked after it failed to file taxes for the past three years. Public records indicate Turner is listed as chairman and founder of the nonprofit.

This pastor had is hands in a lot of mess. He’s not role model in his community right now; that’s for sure.
