LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police in Las Vegas say delivery drivers for marijuana dispensaries are being targeted for robbery.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said it has identified at least two suspects and possibly as many as six suspects in the robberies, which began at the end of June and continued into early July.

Police say that when the driver would arrive to deliver marijuana, the suspects would threaten or punch the driver and steal the product.

Officers said the suspects have been described as two men and four juvenile males.

They’re asking anyone with more information to reach out to the police.
