Robbers targeted Mukilteo medical marijuana grow

Robbers targeted a Mukilteo home for a robbery Monday night because it housed a marijuana-grow operation, according to Mukilteo police.

The victim had a collective medical marijuana garden in the home, police said today.

Three of the men forced their way into the home near the 9800 block of Marine View Drive just before 9:30 p.m. The victim, a 44-year-old man, suffered some facial cuts from being struck by a pistol during the robbery.  The men left with marijuana, police said.

The three men fled in a vehicle that was being driven by the fourth suspect, firing a gunshot from the car as it pulled away. Police arrested all four after the men fled from their car and ran into nearby woods.

The four suspects — ages 24, 23, 19, and 18 and all from Kent — are being held in the Snohomish County Jail.

Police executed a search warrant on the suspects’ vehicle and recovered a handgun, police said.
