Commercial Marijuana Growing Facility On South Coast Hit By Armed Robbers

Jun 12, 2018

Detectives are being very tight lipped about an armed robbery which targeted a marijuana growing facility in Santa Barbara County.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s investigators say four armed men confronted a security guard at the Carpinteria area facility early Saturday morning, and held him at gunpoint.

The guard managed to trigger an alarm, but the robbers were able to flee with some stolen items before deputies reached the scene.

Detectives aren’t identifying the facility which was robbed, and won’t say what was taken.
