The armed robbery of a medical marijuana dispensary on Thursday is considered the first such reported robbery in Oklahoma City since medical marijuana was voted into law last year.
About 11:40 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma City police were dispatched to The Joint, 3628 NW 50, on a reported robbery.
Officers spoke with employees who said two men entered the store, armed with handguns and forced the employees to sit in the lobby while they raided the back room.
Police said the duo “stole a significant amount of marijuana and an undisclosed amount of cash,” and that it is considered the first reported robbery of a medical marijuana dispensary in the city since they opened late last year.
The two men are described as being black, between 25 and 30 years old and both were wearing black masks during the robbery. They are thought to have left the scene in a red Ford Expedition.
Representatives with The Joint declined to comment about the robbery.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
