The suspect who allegedly escaped a foiled June 25 daytime robbery of the Nature’s Cure Inc. medical marijuana dispensary in Westchester after a second suspect was shot to death by a security guard is now in police custody.

LAPD West Bureau homicide detectives arrested Jermal Atkins, 31, on June 26. He is charged with second-degree attempted robbery, Det. Scott Masterson said.

Atkins pleaded not guilty during a June 30 appearance at the LAX Courthouse and remains in custody on $1 million bond.
