Man Shot During Robbery at Medical Marijuana Clinic NR10038rf

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives are investigating the robbery and shooting of an employee at a medical marijuana clinic.

On Jan. 8, 2010, at about 2:10 p.m., LAPD Devonshire Division officers were dispatched to the 8900 block of Reseda Boulevard where a 33-year-old medical marijuana clinic employee was robbed of his wallet and shot.  Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics also responded to the incident and transported the victim to a local hospital where his condition was listed as stable.

Although surveillance video footage of the robbery is available, the suspect still has not been identified and detectives are hoping the release of the footage will assist them in identifying him. The suspect was last seen driving a dark-green, late-1990s, four-door Chevrolet Lumina.

Images of the suspect were captured by surveillance cameras within the clinic and are available at www.lapdtv.org.

Anyone with information about this robbery is urged to call Devonshire Division detectives at (818) 832-0609.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.
