One of the 10 medical marijuana dispensaries in Eagle Rock was evidently the target of a robbery today, according to sources.
The dispensary, called the , was closed down this afternoon and a sign was hung on the front door, indicating the facility wouldn’t open until 6 p.m. A quick look inside revealed employees struck with shock. A prospective customer outside said he passed by the store, located on 4729 Eagle Rock Blvd., at about 3 p.m. and saw a police car parked in front of the dispensary.
Gregory Beck, a spokesman at the LAPD’s media relations office downtown, said, however, that he had no report of a robbery at the marijuana dispensary. An officer who answered the phone at the LAPD Northeast Division Community Police Station also said he had no report of a robbery but added that the station's watch commander, who had stepped out for the day, might have information about any incident.
Asked if the dispensary had been robbed, an employee at the facility told Eagle Rock Patch "we don't have any comments for a newspaper."
A call by Eagle Rock Patch to Senior Lead Officer Craig Orange, who patrols Eagle Rock, wasn’t immediately answered.
