An employee of a medical-marijuana collective was robbed of his product at gunpoint Wednesday night as he was making a delivery, according to the Santa Maria Police Department.
The incident occurred at about 7:30 p.m. in the 500 block of East Cook Street, said Sgt. Russ Mengel.
An employee of the Go Green Compassionate Care Collective was confronted by a man in his early 20s armed with a hand gun, Mengel said.
“The suspect demanded two cases full of marijuana products the victim was attempting to deliver to a patient,” Mengel said.
The suspect fled on foot and remained at large, Mengel said, adding that the victim was not injured.
