The investigation continues into the armed robbery of a marijuana dispensary Wednesday night.


Two men are now in custody as Victoria police continue their investigation into the armed robbery of a marijuana dispensary on June 27.

Police responded to the Burnside Dispensary, located in the 3100-block of Harriet Street at approximately 7:30 p.m.

Initially investigators were on the lookout for a 2002 Chevy Cavalier, but determined it was not the vehicle used in the robbery.

The investigation remains active and ongoing.

Police are cautioning marijuana storefronts to take measures to protect themselves, including having multiple staff on-site and alarm systems.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call 250-995-7654.
