Washington marijuana shop manager uses bear spray to fight off armed robbers

A Washington marijuana shop manager used bear spray to drive off three armed robbery suspects.

It happened Saturday night at Marijuana Club 99 in the Everett area.

Chris Vincent said he was just going through his routine closing duties when the suspects barged into the store.

“He was ordering me to open the register, but I couldn’t. I noticed the guy was a little bit away from me so I grabbed the bear spray. I came after the second guy. They were so confused they couldn’t even get the doors open.”

This robbery happened just eight days after another armed robbery at the same store. The suspects came in and ordered employees onto the ground at gunpoint. They stole thousands of dollars worth of marijuana products.

Vincent said he had to take a stand and fight back to protect his business.
