SAN JOSE (BCN) – Police are looking for two men in connection with armed robberies last month at two marijuana dispensaries in San Jose.
The latest incident occurred on the afternoon of Sept. 29 at a dispensary in the 1600 block of Monterey Road, according to police.
Two men ordered the two employees inside the business to the ground, tied their hands and robbed them of their personal property, along with cash and marijuana from the dispensary, police officials said.
The men fled in a four-door green Honda. The employees were not harmed in the course of the robbery, according to police.

The second suspect appeared to be black, but his race and age are unknown. He was about 5 feet 7 inches tall and around 150 pounds. He was wearing a camouflaged hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and white sneakers.
