LAS VEGAS (AP) - The man who police accuse of illegally selling pot in a Las Vegas shop says he has no idea why he was arrested.

Authorities charged 36-year-old Clayton Bernard on a felony for illegal sales when they visited the Elevate Medical Pharmacy on September 19.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2x2KdVR ) that state tax officials tasked with regulating the recreational marijuana industry got a tip about the business illegally selling pot.

Bernard said Friday that the business doesn’t exist and he doesn’t work there.

Bernard said he was targeted by police because of “discrimination.”

According to the police report, Bernard said during his arrest that he “had nothing to do” with pot sales.

The Nevada Dispensary Association said this was the first illegal shop that they’re aware of recently.
