According to a VPD media release, the technically illegal business that the cops are helping out was held up on Friday, January 9.
“Two men entered the store,” the release states. “One man was armed with a handgun and a can of bear spray. He held the staff at gunpoint while the other man removed a quantity of marijuana before both suspects ran from the store. No shots were fired and no one was injured during the robbery.”
The VPD has not revealed the amount of marijuana that was taken from the dispensary, a Weeds Glass & Gifts on Main Street near East 51st Avenue. The media release also fails to clarify whether or not the stolen marijuana will be returned to the dispensary if and when officers retrieve it.
