Search for 2 men who robbed medical marijuana delivery drivers

Posted: Updated:

IMPERIAL BEACH (CNS) - Authorities were on the hunt Tuesday for two men who robbed medical marijuana delivery drivers at gunpoint in Imperial Beach.

The drivers were attempting to deliver medical marijuana at 371 Caspian Way just before 5 p.m. Monday when two men approached on foot, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Joel Stranger. One of the men threatened the drivers with a black semi-automatic handgun and took a backpack containing eight ounces of marijuana, the sergeant said in a statement.

The suspects then fled on foot, leaving the drivers unharmed, Stranger said.

Authorities described one of the suspects as black, 5 feet 10 and 150 pounds, with a thin mustache and goatee. He said his name was "Aaron" and he wore a baggy gray San Diego State sweatshirt, baggy blue jeans and a black baseball cap, according to the sergeant.

His accomplice was described as black, 6 feet tall and 220 pounds, last seen wearing a red T-shirt and dark jeans.

Anyone with information on the robbers was asked to call the Sheriff's Department's Imperial Beach substation at (619) 498-2400.
