LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Several armed suspects robbed a marijuana dispensary in Lynnwood Thursday evening. One suspect was taken into custody, but police are searching for two other suspects allegedly involved. Police believe the suspects are armed.
According to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office (SCSO), deputies responded to Euphorium Lynnwood, located on the 20900 block of Cypress Way, before 9 p.m. Thursday after “several armed suspects” robbed the dispensary.
The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle and were later found by officers with the Lynnwood Police Department and pursued into Seattle.
The suspects reportedly abandoned their car in Seattle's Green Lake neighborhood and fled on foot. One of the suspects was arrested in Seattle, but police are still searching for two other suspects.
The owner of the store said some employees and security staff were injured in the robbery, although not seriously. The suspects also made off with products.
