Armed Takeover Robbery of Medical Marijuana Clinic NR12367kr

Security Guard Shot

Los Angeles: Three suspects are being sought after an armed robbery and shooting that left a security guard injured.

On July 17, 2012, around 11 a.m., 25-year-old Cornell White and two unidentified male Blacks, walked into a medical marijuana clinic in the 1300 block of West Olympic Blvd.  White, who had frequented the business previously, contacted the security guard and signed in to enter the clinic.  While White distracted the security guard his two accomplices attacked him and wrestled him to the ground.  

White and one of the suspects proceeded to ransack the clinic taking money and marijuana as the third suspect held the security guard on the ground at gunpoint. All three suspects escaped through the back door of the clinic.   
The security guard chased after the trio and was shot by one of the suspects as he neared the corner of 11th Street and Albany Street.  The suspects entered a 1985 two-door Toyota Celica and drove off with White behind the wheel.

The security guard, a 34-year-old male Hispanic, was transported to a local hospital for treatment.  He was admitted and listed in stable condition.

Detectives were able to identify White, who frequented the clinic.  Hours after the robbery, they also found the getaway car and arrested the getaway driver; 28 year-old Brandon Mabson-Martin.  He was booked for Robbery and later released after posting a $150,000 bail.  White and the two other accomplices remain unidentified and at large.
