Armed robbers steal pounds of pot from medical grow house

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police are looking for four suspects who they said robbed a medical marijuana grow house in Northeast Portland Sunday morning.

It happened just after 9 a.m. in the 9600 block of Northeast Everett Street, police said.

A victim told officers he was on the back porch of the house when two men approached him. One of the men hit the victim with a handgun and the two suspects entered the home.

A woman inside the house locked herself in the bathroom until the two suspects left.

The suspects stole several pounds of processed marijuana, police said. They ran out of the house to a waiting car with two other people inside.

The suspects who entered the house are described as two white men. A white man and white woman were waiting the car, which was described as an older blue or silver American-made sedan, police said.

The man who was hit with the gun was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police said the victims do not live at the grow site. The home is only being used to grow legal medical marijuana.
