Three men are still on the loose Monday morning, wanted for holding up a medical marijuana dispensary at gunpoint. Police say three men in masks were caught on surveillance video committing the crime.

Springs police say three suspects walked into the Green Love Wellness dispensary wearing white masks. According to police, one suspect had a gun, another was armed with a knife.

The crooks forced the store clerk to open a cabinet containing the med pot. Once the crook grabbed an undisclosed amount of marijuana, they left the store.

An innocent customer was held down on the ground during the robbery.

Police say they're looking for a white or light-skinned Hispanic man who was wearing black pants and a white hoodie with black gloves. The second man was wearing jeans, a green shirt with a red cap and black gloves. The third suspect had on blue pants, a blue/gray shirt, a dark knit cap and black gloves.

The video shows the crooks running in different directions. Two of them were last seen running east on Platte Ave, the other was running west.

    pot shops are going to be robbed more often in the day now that they know the pot shops lock up the pot at night

    I have a suggestion-lets put a pot shop in every block-that'll put the drug dealers out of business. Instead of buying black market, there won't be any. Then we'll have "legal" & illegal people with a buzz on.

    I bet if we legalize marijuana, it would reduce crime.
