Lake City Way dispensary robbed at gunpoint

Posted by Kate Bergman on July 29th, 2012

Early Saturday morning a Lake City Way marijuana dispensary was robbed at gunpoint and 40 plants were taken, according to various news sources included our news partner The Seattle Times. According to the article:

Police say three men forced their way inside the dispensary about 4:30 a.m. and two were armed with handguns. They held the 70-year-old night watchman at gunpoint.

The robbers also took a laptop computer and fled in the watchman’s car. He was not injured.

According to a article, the dispensary is located on the 8800 block of Lake City Way, where we’re not aware of a dispensary. The article notes:

Narcotics detectives are determining whether the dispensary is legally permitted.

We’ll try to get more details about the crime and the dispensary.

    If they just legalized this crap wouldn’t be happening, so dumb.

    I agree Matt. Vote YES on I-502.

    I bet the “88th & Lake City Way” was a type-o. It was probably 98th & Lake City Way which is Greenside Medical.
