Three male sus­pects have been ar­rested for rob­bing a Lea­side mar­i­juana dis­pen­sary near Bayview Av­enue and Mill­wood Road. On April 29, the sus­pects, 18, 19 and 23 years old, were charged by po­lice for a vi­o­lent raid on Eden Medic­i­nal So­ci­ety that oc­curred on April 25. On the day of the rob­bery, the sus­pects took phys­i­cal con­trol of the store. They were wear­ing dis­guises and were armed with a hand­gun, a stun gun and pep­per spray. Pep­per spray was sprayed into the faces of the em­ploy­ees and cus­tomers, and the sus­pects stole a quan­tity of mar­i­juana and cash.
