LANCASTER (AP) — Three Los Angeles men police say burst into a West Hollywood medical marijuana dispensary and robbed its employees of cell phones, cash and pot have been arrested 70 miles away at a home in Lancaster.

Police say the three burst into the Farmacy-Medical Marijuana Dispensary on Saturday night and closed the front door.

After herding the dispensary’s six employees to the back of the business at gunpoint, they fled with several containers of marijuana, the victims’ cell phones and cash from the safe.

After sheriff’s deputies tracked the trio to a home in Lancaster, the victims identified them.

Sheriff’s officials said Sunday the three were arrested for investigation of kidnapping and robbery. They were jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail.

The victim’s cell phones, cash and the marijuana were recovered.

    Corrupt DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.
    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.
    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.

    Marijuana is a completely harmless substance. We aren’t telling the truth about pot and it is just ridiculous. Pot has so many more benefits than negative side-effects its not even comparable. It is a natural plant that grows on the same earth we do. To make a plant illegal, and make the act of smoking it, which harms no one at all, illegal, is just complete blasphemy. I hope one day we will open our minds and pot will be legalized. Do you believe marijuana will ever be legal worldwide?

    Great post! 🙂

    If you are interested, I have a lot of posts about marijuana in my blogging community.

    I am sure you will find some valuable information within our community!
