A machete-wielding man is on the ran after robing Kingston marijuana store Monday morning. The Kitsap County Sheriff’s detectives are looking for him.

He is suspected of using a machete during the robbery at Green Tiki Cannabis shop on Highway 104 at about 11:41 a.m.

Though the exact quantity of the marijuana he carried from the store is yet to be known, an unconfirmed report said that the suspect made off with two ounces.

Employees of the shop reported the police that the suspect asked to see some marijuana from behind the counter. The employee retrieved the packages and set them on the counter. 

The suspect was described as a white mall in his early 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall to 5 feet 10 inches tall with an athletic build.

“The suspect then displayed a large, black-colored machete, grabbed the packages of pot and walked out the door,” according to a statement from the Sheriff's Office.  

Deputy Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the office, informed that a sheriff's office tracking dog followed the robber’s path to where it appears he got into a vehicle and fled.

After reviewing the surveillance footage from the area, detectives determined the suspect parked a car nearby and he was last seen driving north on Hansville Road.

People having any information about the robbery have been asked to contact Detective Tim Keeler at 360 337 4825 or Detective Krista McDonald at 360 337 7117.
