LAPD Captures Suspects Wanted for Violent Robbery at Medical Marijuana Clinic

Los Angeles: Detectives are asking for the public’s help to provide more information about suspects involved in a violent robbery of a medical marijuana clinic.

On Feb. 27, 2009, just before midnight, three suspects armed with handguns entered a medical marijuana clinic located in the 900 block of South La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. Once inside, one of the suspects placed his gun to the forehead of an employee and forced all occupants to the rear of the business.  The suspects then removed several containers of marijuana and other property from the location.

On Oct. 1, 2008, at a marijuana clinic just one block from the above mentioned location, a security guard was murdered when he attempted to stop a robbery.  Recognizing the high propensity of violence during these types of crimes, detectives from Wilshire Area aggressively investigated these incidents.  

On March 3, 2009, Wilshire Division robbery detectives identified the suspects of the February 27th robbery as Inglewood resident Kwinton Dillard, age 22, and Los Angeles resident Jarell Green, also 22.  On March 4, 2009, both Dillard and Green were arrested in the City of Inglewood.  Detectives recovered evidence linking both suspects to the robbery.

As part of a thorough investigation, Wilshire Area Robbery Detectives are asking for the public’s help to provide additional information about this or other possible crimes committed by Dillard and/or Green.  Information regarding the third suspect is also being sought.

For inquiries or to provide further information, calls should be directed to Wilshire Area Robbery Detective Robert Palacios at 213-922-8266.   During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips. When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  All tips may remain anonymous.
