Three San Francisco men were arrested midday Thursday in connection with a robbery at a medicinal marijuana dispensary in San Francisco’s Mission District, a police spokeswoman said.
The robbery at the dispensary in the 2500 block of Mission Street occurred around 10 a.m.
The three men allegedly entered the business and pointed guns at four employees, according to San Francisco police Officer Tracy Turner.
The workers were instructed to lie on the ground, while the suspects allegedly took 20 jars of medical marijuana, according to police.
The trio then fled to a car parked about three blocks away, police said.
About two hours later, police pulled over a car matching the suspect vehicle description at Webster Street and Golden Gate Avenue, Turner said.
The three men inside were identified as city residents Tremayne Brown, 20; Almjermyn Tyler, 38; and Deangelo Redd, 30, according to Turner.
All three were taken into custody, police said.
Turner said a “green leafy substance” believed to be the stolen marijuana was found in the car.
