3 suspects in custody after marijuana dispensary robbery

Three people were in custody this morning after what police said was a robbery of a marijuana dispensary in North Hollywood.

The incident was reported around 1:40 a.m. at Vanowen Street and Vineland Avenue, a duty officer at LAPD's North Hollywood Station said.

Police responded to a report of a robbery in progress while an ambulance crew responded to a reported assault, according to a camera crew at the scene.

Around two hours after the initial calls, as many as seven people were handcuffed outside Smokers Stop, a store with smoking implements on display, On Scene reported from Vanowen and Vineland. One person was treated by an ambulance crew for a head injury, according to On Scene.

Investigators were still at Vanowen and Vineland at 5 a.m., with three people in custody and described as suspects, the North Hollywood Station duty officer said. She said she did not know whether the suspects tried to take cash or marijuana or both.
