A San Bernardino man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly robbing a Cathedral City medical marijuana dispensary at gunpoint, then fleeing with money and merchandise, while his accomplice remains at large.

Travion Riddick, 23, was arrested at about 3 p.m. on suspicion of armed robbery and a probation violation.

Riddick and a second unidentified man are allegedly connected with the 7 p.m. Wednesday robbery of No Wait Meds, 68860 Ramon Road.

According to police Cmdr. Julio Luna, two men armed with handguns entered the dispensary demanding money and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and “marijuana products.”

Police are still searching for the second man involved, as well as a gun used in the robbery.
