U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials arrested a man while serving a search warrant at an Oakland marijuana grow this morning, a DEA spokeswoman said.

The warrant was served in the 500 block of East 10th Street near Laney College between 11 a.m. and noon, DEA Special Agent Casey Rettig said.

Rettig said agents found about 500 marijuana plants at the location and arrested Kristopher Johanson, 45, of Oakland there.

As agents were serving the warrant, there was a vehicle crash in the area that injured a person also believed to be involved with the marijuana grow, Rettig said.

Oakland fire officials said that crash was reported at 11:41 a.m. and one person was taken to a hospital, but could not disclose the extent of their injuries.

The details of the investigation remain under seal and Rettig could not provide further details.
