Police Search For Woman Suspected in Armed Marijuana Dispensary Robbery

PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – Police Thursday were searching for a woman suspected in an attempted armed robbery at a marijuana dispensary in Palm Springs.

Officers responded around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday to the 2700 block of North Palm Canyon Drive to a report of shots fired inside the dispensary, according to the Palm Springs Fire Department.

A woman with a  black mask entered the store with a gun and as a security guard approached her, she fired a round toward the ground, police said. The gun was wrestled away from her by a security guard before she fled.

The gun was being processed by police, who described the woman as mid 20s, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, red hair and a thin build.

“She was last seen wearing blue latex gloves, a blue jacket, black pants and tan high-top shoes,” Palm Springs police said. “Witnesses say she also had a black backpack.”
