COSTA MESA – Police are looking for two men who robbed a South
County marijuana dispensary owner at gunpoint over the weekend.
The dispensary owner and another resident of the same house came home
Saturday night to find two robbers coming out of the house, police said.
Police did not name the victims.
The two residents of the house in the 600 block of Whitney Way came home
around 10 p.m. and stumbled on two robbers who took them inside and tied
them up, police said.
At first, the robbers tried to get inside a safe inside the house, but
couldn't, Sgt. Bryan Glass of the Costa Mesa police said. One of the
robbers, who had a gun, forced the victim to open the safe.
The robbers left the victims tied up, but they managed to get free by
around 3 a.m. Sunday and called the police.
