It was almost 10 p.m. in late February 2022 when four armed robbers, all in their late teens and early twenties, stormed the Craft Cannabis Marijuana Dispensary on Andresen Road, holding two shop employees at gunpoint and stealing about $1,600 in cash plus cannabis-related products.

According to police records, the employees were ordered to the ground and continually threatened throughout the robbery.
