NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Four people have been charged with torturing a California marijuana dispensary owner during a robbery and cutting off his penis.

Authorities say a man and woman were arrested Friday in Fresno — a day after the FBI arrested another man in Europe. A fourth man was arrested last year.

They're charged with mayhem and could face life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say the four — including a grower that supplied the Orange County dispensary — planned to rob the owner because they mistakenly believed he'd buried cash in the California desert.

Authorities say the robbers kidnapped the man and his girlfriend in Newport Beach last year, drove them to the desert, tortured the man, severed his penis and took it away so it couldn't be reattached.

He survived.

"pot clinic" just proives this is a lurid and moot report, chosen for low-level NV "readers". Not even on CA radar

Nvada has undeveloped "mebntal facilities" (I believe the educated term is 'faculties'); and this is proven because they shipped patients outta state on Greyhound (which is where all the money came in before Indian Casinos). Suckers!

Isn't that being a little unfair to people with underdeveloped mental facilities?

Nv4 posts a lurid, stale story for no good reason. In CA, "mayhem" is the term for egregious, brutal acts. In NV, 'it's all good'
