Julio Jones and Roddy White are being dragged through the mud by a cannabis company that throwing out some serious allegations.
According to LBS, Jones and Roddy allegedly went behind a cannibis company’s back to sell hundreds of pounds of cannabis on the black market.
More from the report of the business called “Genetix” filing a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on July 21 that names Jones, White and White’s company “SLW Holdings, Inc”:
“The business says it intended to take part in a legal cannabis operation, following the guidelines in California.
Genetixs leased a facility in Desert Hot Springs, Calif. in Feb. 2020 where they intended to cultivate and grow cannabis in accordance with state regulations. However, the complaint alleges that things went wrong when Genetixs hired a man named John Van Beek to oversee the buildout and management of their facility.
Not only is Van Beek accused of charging excessive money for the buildout, but he also allegedly began to breach his duties. Genetixs accuses Van Beeks of failing to provide budgets, expenditures, invoices, and other business-related paperwork. State inspections of the facility made note of numerous violations at the facility. Van Beek was terminated in March, 2021.
Genetixs alleges that Jones and White, who were teammates on the Atlanta Falcons for five years, went behind the company’s back to work with the Van Beeks. The Van Beeks allegedly cultivated and grew cannabis for sale on the illegal black market, enriching themselves and Jones and White. The Van Beeks disconnected cameras in the facility, began squatting there, and prevented a new manager from entering the facility, according to the complaint.”
The lawsuit further states Van Beeks have not reported sales to Genetixs since March and they estimate about $3 million in cannabis has been harvested and sold illegally per month since then.
The Van Beeks are said to have abandoned the Genetixs Cannabis Facility and surrendered the premises to the landlord. Before that happened, however, they allegedly “looted, removed, and misappropriated” Genetixs’ cannabis derived from more than 22 harvests, according to the report.
Jones, White, SLW, the Van Beeks, and others are being sued on grounds of conspiracy to defraud, aiding and abetting, breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, and breach of contract.
The 39-year-old White has been retired for years while Julio Jones was traded to the Tennessee Titans this offseason.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
