​A husband and wife have been arrested in the March 24 Long Beach slaying of a medical marijuana distributor.

Philip Victor Williamson, 29, was gunned down in a Long Beach alleyway.

​A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest of whomever is responsible for the murder of alleged medical marijuana hauler Philip Victor Williamson, whose body was discovered on March 24 in an alley in Long Beach, California.

The award was proposed by Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe, reports Allison Jean Eaton at the Long Beach Post. Police believe Williamson, 29, reportedly a medicinal cannabis deliveryman, could have had up to $500,000 in cash on him when he died, reports Nick Schou at OC Weekly.
Williamson was shot in a Pine Avenue alleyway, and Long Beach Police say his death “could be linked” to his distributing medical marijuana from a collective in Chico to dispensaries in Long Beach and Los Angeles.
The reward money “may prompt witnesses to come forward,” Knabe said.
