, FROM STAFF REPORTS
OAKLAND — A downtown medical marijuana dispensary was robbed of cash and pot by three gunmen Sunday evening, police said.
The suspects made off with $600 and 5 pounds of marijuana, with a street value in excess of $10,000, police said.
The robbery occurred at SR-71 around 7:45 p.m. Sunday, when three men in their 20s, all armed with handguns, took over the shop. The trio fled in a 1970s blue van with gray stripes, police said.
A licensed cannibis club and coffee shop, SR-71 is one of three operating
marijuana dispensaries in the so-called Oaksterdam neighborhood. Located at 377 17th St., the store has a loyal clientele.
Neighboring storekeepers say they were not aware of the robbery. The owner of SR-71 and store clerks would not comment on the case.
Police have not made any arrests. </DIV></DIV></DIV>Edited by: psyvision2000
