Police are searching for three, possibly as many as four men who robbed a cannabis distributor as he was delivering to Embarc Cannabis Dispensary in Martinez a little after noon Wednesday, brandishing guns and making off with a large amount of cannabis and the victim’s personal belongings.
The brazen robbery was reported at approximately 12:11 p.m. Officers quickly located the unharmed 36-year-old male victim and learned that three suspects, described as black male adults wearing masks, had robbed him at gunpoint while he was arriving to deliver cannabis to the business, 3503 Alhambra Avenue.
Two of the three suspects, who were armed with semi-automatic handguns, approached the victim and stole from the delivery vehicle, police said. The suspects fled the scene in a newer model black Honda sedan. The suspect vehicle had a small dent on the back of the vehicle above the rear license plate.
