Hammer-Wielding Man Robs Aspen Marijuana Store

July 29, 2015

Police say a hammer-wielding man who robbed an Aspen marijuana store of $11,000 worth of the drug was friends with the employees and known by local authorities.

The Aspen Times reports the man came into "Stash" on Tuesday afternoon acting like he was a customer, then waited for other customers to leave. Store owner Garrett Patrick says the man approached two employees with a hammer and said "Sorry. I'm just really desperate now."
