Two males and two females took large amounts of marijuana and cash as well as a security guard's handgun in what police called a "takeover robbery" of a marijuana dispensary in North Hollywood Wednesday.
The suspects used a rifle and two handguns to carry out the robbery at 9:51 p.m. in the 11700 block of Vose Street, near Lankershim Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im said.
The suspects were last seen westbound Vose Street in a white Toyota Prius and a black Dodge Durango, Im said.
