GRANADA HILLS - Police today searched for six men who took roughly $10,000 in cash and thousands of dollars worth marijuana during a takeover robbery at a medical marijuana clinic in Granada Hills.
The robbery occurred at 10369 Balboa Blvd. around 8:30 last night, said Sgt. Jace Kessler of the Los Angeles Police Department's Devonshire Station.
During the heist, one shot was fired, ricocheting off the floor and breaking a window. No one was injured.
The six robbers took some $10,000 in cash and up to four pounds of marijuana before fleeing the scene in a 4-door SUV, possibly a Mercedes, Kessler said.
During the investigation police recovered a sawed off double-barrel 12- gauge shotgun from the scene, he added, though police did not immediately say who is believed to be the weapon's owner.
Anyone with information on the robbers was urged to call detectives at the LAPD's Devonshire Station
