Attempted marijuana dispensary robbery, foiled by manager

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO - Police searched Friday for four men suspected of a failed robbery at a College east area marijuana dispensary whose attempt was foiled by the business' manager.

Four men with bandanas covering their faces, one armed with a gun, entered the Green Goddess Medical Marijuana facility located in the 7300 block of El Cajon Boulevard, near 73rd Street, around 9 p.m., said Sgt. Robin Rose of the San Diego Police Department.

The armed suspect pointed the gun at the facility's manager and ordered the other employees to the ground, Rose said.

The manager grabbed the suspect's gun and a struggle ensued, Rose said. One shot was fired, but no one was hit.

One employee suffered a minor injury from broken glass, Rose said.

The suspects fled from the scene empty-handed in a black sports utility vehicle last seen headed west, Rose said. The suspects were all described as black, wearing black hooded sweatshirts, wearing bandanas over their faces.
