Detectives Arrest Suspect After Armed Robbery

A robber wanted for holding up a Madison Valley medical marijuana dispensary earlier this month was arrested Thursday night.

The suspect made off with more than $10,000 in cash and merchandise when he robbed the dispensary, located on the 2300 block of East Madison Street, at gunpoint on Feb. 10. The suspect threatened to shoot the clerk before fleeing the scene.

Detectives collected evidence and reviewed video before arresting a 22-year-old Kent man, with the assistance of US Marshalls. The robber was tracked down at a Sea-Tac hotel. He was booked into King County Jail on investigation of robbery.
