Victoria BC – VicPD detectives are investigating the report of a robbery that occurred in the 1700-block of Cook Street on Tuesday evening.

VicPD officers were called for a robbery at the Ocean Grown Medicinal Dispensary at approximately 8:35 p.m. The suspects fled in a vehicle. VicPD officers gave chase, but were unable to locate the suspects.

It was determined after initial contact with the people in the store that the two male suspects brandished firearms. During the robbery, the victims had their hands bound in the store by the suspects.

The investigation is in the early stages and VicPD investigators are continuing to gather information. VicPD is looking to see if there is a connection between the previous dispensary robberies this year, although it is too early to say if there is any connection.

If you have any information about this robbery, please call VicPD’s non-emergency number at 250-995-7654. You can also report information anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
