Several people, some carrying guns, robbed a Portland marijuana dispensary Sunday night, Portland Police officials said.
Green Buds, a dispensary located at Northeast 109th Ave and Sandy Boulevard, was entered by several people about 8:50 pm who robbed the shop at gunpoint.
Police say up to six people were involved in the robbery, both men and women, with at least four of them carrying guns.
Police officers arrived at the dispensary within minutes of the 911 call. They observed two suspects leaving the property to the north towards some railroad tracks.
Special Emergency Reaction Team officers searched the area, but had been unable to locate any suspects as of Monday morning. Detectives released one man detained near the dispensary after determining that he was not involved in the robbery.
Chris Schaaf, owner of the dispensary, said the robbers took all the cash and all the marijuana, but his employees are all safe and unhurt.
Portland Police spokesman Pete Simpson said they are “actively searching for suspects in the area.” Investigators said they aren't sure if any of the suspects fired a gun, or whether anything was taken in the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Portland Police Department by calling 911.
