Armed robbery in North Hollywood leads to case of mistaken identity

- Two males and two females took large amounts of marijuana and cash as well as a security guard's handgun in what police called a "takeover robbery'' of a marijuana dispensary in North Hollywood Wednesday night.

The suspects used a rifle and two handguns to carry out the robbery at 9:51 p.m. in the 11700 block of Vose Street, near Lankershim Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im said.

The suspects were last seen westbound Vose Street in a white Toyota Prius and a black Dodge Durango, Im said.

A family traveling in a vehicle that matched the description of one of the suspect vehicles was followed and stopped by police. The family was ordered out of the vehicle but police established that they were not the suspects.

No injuries were reported.
