Thurston County Pot Shop Robbed at Gunpoint Monday for Second Time This Year, Police Say


Lacey Police are investigating an armed robbery that happened at Forbidden Cannabis Club in Lacey on Monday night.

Sgt. Shannon Barnes said two suspects entered the store at 6326 Martin Way E. about 8 p.m. demanding money from the safe and registers. One suspect fired a round from a handgun, though no injuries were reported.

The suspects fled the scene before officers arrived. One suspect was described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and tennis shoes and he walks with a limp. The other was described as a larger male wearing a black jacket and gray sweatpants.

This is the second time the dispensary has been robbed at gunpoint this year. The Olympian previously reported that three men robbed the store on Jan. 3 and stole cash and product after pointing their guns at employees. No one was injured in that incident.
