The suspect stole wallets, phones and keys, as well as an undisclosed amount of cash from the business. The suspect held one employee at gunpoint while demanding another fill a large duffel bag with marijuana.

    Kinda makes me laugh
    I would definitely have an armed guard at the door. Gunna run any business that stocks untraceable goods like that you should be armed.

    Just too bad I guess.

    With these new Multnomah County laws, could the owner/employee have open carried in his own store?

    I think a look at the camera before you are "buzzed in" entrance security system should have been in place.

    Regardless of personal feelings, this is a legitimate business. Will be interesting to see how the police handle this one.

    He he . . . his sweatshirt said "obey". I find that a little ironic. That guy auto submitted.

    Any person that risks 20 years in jail for something like this is an idiot, but gotta say he was pretty organized and down to business. He also was not any more violent than he needed to be. A lot of robbers would have clobbered them over the head or tied them up to buy more escape time.

    That is a lot of pot. My guess is someone will snitch him out.

    Didn't appear to have finger on trigger. Did he maybe know them? Why not sell the crap through a drawer and a bullet proof window like European banks do with cash transactions?
    Nothing seemed locked up, not even a hint of security except the camera.
    How much is that duffle bag of pot worth BTW? Last time I partook Clinton was prez.

    I get they are all laid back and what not, but they really need to operate these places more like check cashing places. These aren't cigarettes that you can get from any 7-11 on the block that these folks are dealing with. It's a drug that is still, technically, outlawed at the federal level. There should be bullet resistant glass between the sellers and the patrons.

    Same with the growers about security/safety. Seems to be a lot of incidents involving firearms in suburban neighborhoods over this stuff.

    The perp also seemed to know his way around a little too well. Maybe an inside job. A customer that has cased the place before or a friend of an employee.

    he may make a few thousand off of it before he's caught but in all maybe $10k total value. he will need to know people to help move it, so it wont be the last time we hear about this.

    pot is very commonly used but selling that amount will take either time or someone to sell it too. the thing about pot dealers is they usually smoke it too. you get a bit relaxed and tell the wrong person about your score and things start to crumble. its very unlikely this guy is a regular dealer in this kind of weight and he will likely he will try to employ some friends, one will get caught and roll over, im sure of it.

    Maybe.
    The amount he took can buy some gas to get out of the region and make a good score
