Man injured in takeoverstyle robbery at Spring Valley Marijuana Dispensary

first_img Posted: April 17, 2018 Updated: 11:42 AM KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom SPRING VALLEY (KUSI) – A search was underway today for two suspects who fired shots and clubbed a man in the head during a robbery at a Spring Valley marijuana dispensary.The takeover-style heist was occurred about 11:40 p.m. Monday at a business park at 9966 Dolores St. The gunmen entered the Spring Valley Collective and ordered customers and employees to the ground, then robbed the dispensary and fled before deputies arrived, San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Barry said. He said 911 callers said shots were fired at some point.Nobody was injured by the gunfire, but when deputies arrived, they found a man with blunt force trauma injuries, Barry said. The sergeant did not say specifically how the man sustained the injuries, but 10News reported that at least one of the suspects struck him in the head with the blunt end of a firearm.The injured victim, whose name was not released, was taken to an undisclosed hospital for evaluation, Barry said. It was unclear whether the crime was related to armed heists of a similar nature in the Spring Valley area. Prior to Monday, the most recent similar hold-up reported in the area happened last Aug. 10 at the Bancroft Mega Wellness dispensary in the 3600 block of Bancroft Drive, less than two miles from the Spring Valley Collective.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.At that time, sheriff’s Sgt. Kotaro Murashige of the Rancho San Diego substation described a similar robbery to the one on Monday, in which two armed men forced their way into the illegal dispensary, disarmed a security guard, forced everyone to the ground and made off with marijuana products.Murashige said in August that it was a familiar pattern from several previous robberies in the Spring Valley area.“In each case, armed guards were not a deterrent, the suspects were all armed (and) dispensary staff members failed to call for help even after people were physically assaulted,” the sergeant said. “In some cases the staff members refused to allow law enforcement to enter, causing a stand-off situation that stretched the department’s resources in helping victims.”The Dolores Street dispensary robbed Monday was familiar to Spring Valley deputies. On Feb. 8, sheriff’s detectives and members of the San Diego Crime Suppression Team raided the illegal business and confiscated marijuana, edibles, cash and a loaded BB pistol, according to Sgt. Matt Cook.Despite the use of marijuana becoming legal statewide at the beginning of this year, businesses that sell marijuana are still banned from operating throughout much of the county, including all unincorporated areas of the county. Legitimate marijuana businesses are allowed to operate in the city of San Diego and some other cities, but must be licensed.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4?_=200:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.center_img Man injured in takeover-style robbery at Spring Valley Marijuana Dispensary April 17, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Israels Beresheet moon landing attempt ends with a crash

first_img Israeli moon mission makes orbit ahead of Sea of Serenity landing SpaceX sends Israel’s historic moon mission on its way Originally published April 11, 12:32 p.m. PT.Update, 6:40 p.m. PT: Adds traditional information regarding X Prize and Beresheet’s final image. The failed mission will be remembered as bittersweet.”Well, we didn’t make it, but we definitely tried, and the achievement of getting where we got is really tremendous,” said Morris Khan, an Israeli entrepreneur who provided a large portion of the funding for Beresheet, as he addressed the observers near the control room. “We can be proud.”NASA commended the mission in a tweet: “We congratulate SpaceIL, Israel Aerospace Industries and the state of Israel on the accomplishment of sending the first privately funded mission into lunar orbit.” Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 pilot, also had kind words. “Never lose hope. Your hard work, teamwork, and innovation is inspiring to all,” he tweeted. While @NASA regrets the end of the @TeamSpaceIL mission without a successful lunar landing, we congratulate SpaceIL, Israel Aerospace Industries and the state of Israel on the accomplishment of sending the first privately funded mission into lunar orbit. https://t.co/XwHpN5M8Pu pic.twitter.com/cfMtP4srDr— Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) April 11, 2019 4:13 Beresheet launched on Feb. 21 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and overcame a brief technical glitch along the way. The lander was designed to take pictures of its surroundings and measure the moon’s magnetic field. It was even able to snap one final, breathtaking image as it approached the lunar surface and beam it back to Earth.SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) had placed a time capsule in the lander filled with digital files covering Israel’s history and heritage. That time capsule was likely lost along with the spacecraft. The dream didn’t quite come to fruition, but Beresheet’s journey to lunar orbit was still an important moment in space history that made the moon feel more in reach for the world. Although SpaceIL didn’t quite make the deadline, the X Prize foundation was inspired by its attempt, creating a new prize dubbed the Moonshot Award. Originally, the foundation stated “for their achievement upon landing on the moon”, X Prize would hand SpaceIL the first Moonshot Award — and $1 million.Of course, Beresheet did not make it to the surface in one piece but it did still land — albeit with a little more force than hoped. As a result, the foundation said it would still be providing SpaceIL with the cash. Beresheet snapped this partial selfie during its approach to the moon. SpaceIL/IAI Israel’s Beresheet would have been the most unlikely lunar lander in history, but the spacecraft didn’t survive its reach for the moon’s surface Thursday.SpaceIL’s live broadcast followed the tense maneuvers needed to get the lunar lander down to the Sea of Serenity on the near side of the moon. The Beresheet team members worked in the control room as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu watched from a spectator area.The landing process suffered some glitches when the main engine cut out and mission control lost communication. The disappointed team reacted calmly to the failure.

They will be the recipients of our first ever $1M Moonshot Award, in honor of their achievements and their milestone as the first privately-funded entity to orbit the Moon. 🌒 #moonshot pic.twitter.com/ErUfjqvvxY— XPRIZE (@xprize) April 11, 2019 Beresheet aims for the moon Share your voice This was a mission of firsts. Beresheet was to be Israel’s first moon lander, which would have put the country in an exclusive club that includes the US, Soviet Union and China. In addition, nonprofit SpaceIL would have been the first private, nongovernment group to set a lander on the moon’s surface.SpaceIL was originally conceived to compete in Google’s Lunar X Prize which, in 2007, threw down a challenge to private companies to build a spacecraft that could land on the moon. The original deadline to claim the $30 million in prize money was originally 2014, but it was extended out until 2018 before an announcement that the prize would go unclaimed.

UN rights chief slams Bangladesh drug war

first_imgUN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra`ad Al HusseinThe UN rights chief on Wednesday condemned the recent killing of more than 100 alleged drug dealers in Bangladesh, insisting that extra-judicial killings cannot be justified in the fight against narcotics.Some 130 people have reportedly been shot dead by Bangladeshi security forces since 15 May and another 15,000 arrested in the Philippines-style crackdown aimed to halt the spread of methamphetamine and other illegal drugs.”I am gravely concerned that such a large number of people have been killed,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement.He also voiced concern about government reaction, which “has been to assure the public that none of these individuals were ‘innocent’.”Such statements are dangerous and indicative of a total disregard for the rule of law,” he said.”People do not lose their human rights because they use or sell drugs.”Bangladesh has been struggling to contain a surging drug trade.Police have vowed to stamp out “yaba”, a very popular street pill made of caffeine and methamphetamine.Authorities last year seized a record 40 million yaba tablets, but said an estimated 250-300 million others entered the market, due in part to large quantities coming across the border from major producer Myanmar.Nine million yaba tablets were seized in less than three months earlier this year, including nearly two million in a single haul.The rights commissioner stressed that “the presumption of innocence and the right to due process must be at the forefront of any efforts to tackle crime.””Given the large number of people arrested, there is a high likelihood that many people may have been arbitrarily detained, without due regard for their rights.”Urging Bangladesh to investigate reports of extra-judicial killings and hold the perpetrators to account, he also voiced concern that already vulnerable slum communities were particular targets and that the crackdown appeared to be hampering drug users from accessing health services.The alleged dealers killed in Bangladesh mainly died in what authorities described as shootouts, but parallels have been drawn to the Philippines where police have been accused of executing suspects.”There is no doubt that the trafficking and sale of illegal narcotics leads to tremendous suffering,” the rights chief added.”But extra-judicial killings, arbitrary arrests and the stigmatisation of people who use drugs cannot be the answer.”last_img
