Two men have been arrested in connection with an armed marijuana robbery that occurred in Marin City on Friday evening, a sheriff’s lieutenant said today.
One suspect, 26-year-old Terrell Bland, was arrested Monday on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy and committing a felony while participating in a criminal street gang, Marin County sheriff’s Lt. Jamie Scardina said.
The second suspect, Lebraun Wallace, 22, was arrested today on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy, committing a felony while participating in a criminal street gang and committing a felony while out on bail, Scardina said.
The suspects, both Marin City residents, have been booked into county jail.
Wallace had previously been arrested in connection with residential burglaries that occurred on Leona Drive in Santa Venetia on Dec. 28 and on Buckeye Way in Kentfield on Nov. 13 but had been released on bail, Scardina said.
Two more suspects remain at large, and the sheriff’s office has released a photo of one that was captured by a surveillance camera.
The marijuana robbery was reported at about 7:25 p.m. Friday when a resident of Terners Drive called and told the sheriff’s office that a robbery victim was at his door asking for help.
The victim is an East Bay resident who had come to Marin City to sell several pounds of marijuana to a prearranged buyer, according to the sheriff’s office. He told investigators he only sells to cannabis clubs and to people with medical marijuana cards.
Once in Marin City, he was accosted by four people who robbed him of the marijuana, as well as his car keys, cellphone and wallet, sheriff’s officials said. He told authorities that three of the robbers were armed with handguns.
The victim was not hurt in the robbery.
