Three men suspected of robbing the Going Green marijuana dispensary in San Rafael were arrested Thursday after a police pursuit and search, a Marin County sheriff’s sergeant said. A fourth male suspect is still at large, Sgt. Mark Hale said this morning. The men entered the dispensary at 294 N. San Pedro Road through an unlocked back door at 4:45 p.m., ordered occupants on the ground at gunpoint and stole cash and marijuana, Hale said. One of the suspects also fired a gun inside the dispensary, he said.
The suspects left in a four-door, black Toyota east on North San Pedro Road toward China Camp, Hale said. Deputies pursued the suspects, who sped away from an attempted traffic stop and drove on Oak Drive in San Rafael, according to Hale. The California Highway Patrol’s helicopter and San Rafael and Novato police also responded, Hale said. The suspects then fled from the vehicle and were found in a marsh in the area of Oak and Marine drives in unincorporated Marin County, Hale said. A handgun was found beside the Toyota, he said. Deputies also found dark clothing worn by the fourth suspect, Hale said.
Alonzo Eriberto Sandoval, 18, of San Rafael, Ruben Torres, 22, of Santa Venetia, and Brandon Mervin James Spencer, 19, of Santa Venetia, were arrested between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of burglary, robbery and conspiracy to commit a crime. They are being held under $75,000 bail and are scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning in Marin County Superior Court.
