Woman Enters Kardashians' West Hollywood DASH Store With Gun
By Jennifer Drysdale
DASH employees received quite the scare on Thursday when a woman entered the Kardashian-owned store with a gun.
The Watch Commander for the West Hollywood Sheriff’s department confirms to ET that a woman did enter the store and pulled a gun, though the incident is not believed to be an attempted robbery.
"At 11:19 a.m., a female white adult walked into the store and apparently she had some type of revolver hand gun. She mumbled something incoherently but it was nothing with the Kardashian name," the Watch Commander says. "The woman knocked some things off of the counter and then walked out.”
"It doesn’t appear that it was a robbery or anything. It just looks like she walked in, had a hand gun, knocked some stuff off a counter and walked out," the Watch Commander added, revealing that the investigation is still ongoing and the unknown woman is still at large.
A spokesperson for the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department confirmed to ET on Friday that the gunman who entered the Dash store on Thursday afternoon has been arrested.
The spokesperson said “Maricia Medrano was arrested yesterday just before midnight after police conducted a search warrant. Medrano was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and was placed on 50,000 dollar bail.”
This isn't the first time DASH's Melrose location has been the subject of investigation. The store was robbed in January, with the suspect taking between $1,400 and $1,600 worth of merchandise.
