Choctaw County dispensary out thousands of dollars after robbery
CHOCTAW COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - A medical marijuana dispensary is out thousands of dollars after an armed robbery Saturday morning.
“I don’t think if we would have complied, they would have killed us,” Sherri Taylor said.
An ordinary Saturday morning at Stoned 4 Survival dispensary quickly turned terrifying for owners Donny and Sherri Taylor.
“It was a normal day in business, we were opening the store up and stocking the shelves,” Donny said.
That’s when they said a man came in.
“He was upset that we would not sell to him illegally and ended up saying well he guesses he knew what we had to do, well we didn’t think anything of that at the time,” Sherri said.
The man got back into a blue Dodge four door pickup truck with chrome bed rails, chrome step bars, and a chrome gas cover.
He drove to meet a red Dodge Charger with a chrome grill and aftermarket chrome wheels and tires.
The charger pulled up, and according to OSBI, three males got out of the car.
Two went inside and started asking questions about medical marijuana licenses.
“We heard the door open again and that’s when the two in here pulled their guns and the third one came in with an assault rifle,” Sherri said.
The suspects immediately ordered the Taylor’s to get on the ground.
“On the ground guns to our heads, kidneys, get on the ground kind of thing,” Sherri said. ”So they packed everything out of both safes all kinds of marijuana products, cash, a gun.”
The Taylors said the suspects got away with more than $12,000 cash and marijuana products worth even more than that.
Once they got everything our of the safes, the three suspects forced the Taylors into this closet.
“I really thought they were taking us back there to die, and they told us to stay in there, don’t come out or they would kill us,” Sherri said.
After a few minutes the suspects had left, and they called for help.
Now the Taylors said their main focus is rebuilding their business for their patients who need them most.
“From cancer patients to seizures, there are numerous people we help and that this medicine helps but we’re coming back, we will come back from this,” Sherri said.
They plan to re-open Monday.
The OSBI describes the first suspect as a black male, light skin tone, early to mid-20′s, atheltic build, approximately six foot tall, wearing a black Nike branded hooded jacket or hoodie, Saint Louis Rams snap back style cap, black sweatpants and white and black tennis shoes, wearing a surgical style mask.
