Detectives with the Victoria police are investigating an armed robbery at a medical marijuana dispensary on Cook Street Tuesday evening.

Around 8:35 p.m., police were called to the Ocean Grown Medical Dispensary in the 1700 block of Cook Street. The suspects took off in a vehicle once officers arrived.

According to police, the people in the store said the two male suspects brandished firearms. The victims also had their hands bound during the robbery.

Police continue to investigate and are trying to determine whether there is a connection between previous robberies at dispensaries this year.

Earlier this month, a man armed with a weapon entered the Weeds Social Club in the 1600 block of Douglas Street and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and drugs.

The suspect in that case is described as a Caucasian man, five foot nine inches with a slim build, wearing a blue sweat top with a dark hood. He is believed to be in his 20s to early 30s and was last seen riding a white BMX-style bike.

Anyone with information is asked to call 250-995-7654.
