Tigard man pleads guilty to October medical marijuana robbery

A Tigard man pleaded guilty for the armed robbery of a Beaverton medical marijuana dispenser last October.

Ryan Morris Schulberg, 28, was one of two Tigard men arrested by Beaverton Police Oct. 15 after police said he and another man shot a gun at an apartment complex in the 5900 block of Southwest 141st Avenue and demanded narcotics.

Schulberg and Andrew Kraig Yarborough-Gamble, 26, had been invited to the home of a medical marijuana supplier but pulled a gun on him and shot it into the air, the supplier told police.

The two men demanded that the supplier give them drugs.

Neighbors who heard the commotion called police. Witnesses reported seeing two men with guns in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

Police responded to reports that shots were fired at the apartment complex at about 2 p.m. and saw Schulberg and Yarborough-Gamble near Southwest 141st Avenue.

After a low-speed chase, police stopped the car about 10 blocks away from the apartment and found a loaded, stolen shotgun in the car.

Yarborough-Gamble faced charges of robbery, menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and theft by receiving the stolen gun. Schulberg was charged with robbery.

In March, Yarborough-Gamble plead guilty and was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison under Measure 11 guidelines. Schulberg pleaded guilty on May 3.

On Monday, May 23, Schulberg was sentenced to seven years and one month under Measure 11 guidelines.
