Medical Marijuana Dispensary Robbed; Two Injured

A medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado Springs was robbed and two
people injured Monday afternoon.

Colorado Springs police say Green Earth Wellness Center at 519 North
30th St. in Colorado Springs was robbed around 1:35 p.m. Monday.

Police say two suspects attacked and forced two employees into a back
room before looting the business of cash and marijuana products. Both
victims suffered minor injuries; one was sprayed in the face with pepper

Cops say the suspects ran from the business and that no getaway car was
seen. Detectives say one suspect is a white male, mid-20's, 5'10" 160
pounds, with short light brown hair. The other is a white male in his
20's, 6' 5", thin to medium build, with short brown hair.

Police say this is the first medical marijuana dispensary robbery in
Colorado Springs, and authorities say other dispensary owners should be
aware and on the lookout for suspicious activity.
