Four arrested in Carbondale pot shop robbery in central Colorado

CARBONDALE — Four people face charges after a Carbondale marijuana shop was robbed at gunpoint as it was opening Monday morning.

Carbondale Police Chief Gene Schilling said two robbers walked through the front door of Sweet Leaf Pioneer marijuana shop on Village Road at about 10 a.m. and one showed a gun to employees. No customers were in the shop at the time, the chief said.

The pair fled in a red Ford Mustang with “an undisclosed amount of cash,” according to a press release from Carbondale police. Schilling said the robbers also took items besides cash, but he wouldn’t disclose what they were.

Authorities alerted law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for a stolen red Mustang.
