Los Angeles Medical Marijuana Theft Crimes

Posted By Robert Bernstein || 15-Aug-2009

There has been a dramatic rise in theft crimes and robberies occurring at medical marijuana dispensaries in the Los Angeles area. A team of gunmen allegedly enter the dispensaries posing as customers, then take over the business and flee with large quantities of marijuana and U.S. currency. The frequency of the heists, and their violence, is increasing.
