Seattle pot dispensary robbed at gunpoint

There is not points to locate on the map

Seattle police are looking for two individuals who robbed a medical marijuana dispensary at gunpoint Monday morning.

Employees said the robbers wore gloves and nylon masks when they rushed an employee from behind as he was entering the dispensary in the 1200 block of South Jackson Street around 9:30 a.m. The robbers, who were armed with handguns, ordered two employees into a back room and demanded access to the safe.

They took an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe and escorted both victims into a bathroom area and closed the door. The victims waited a few minutes to make sure the suspects were gone, and then called 911.

Police searched the immediate area but did not locate any suspects.
