Man is robbed by Ninjas for medical marijuana

Medical marijuana growers and distributors will have to be extra careful these days, they are being targeted, by ninjas.

During a medical marijuana delivery late Friday night around 10 p.m. in West Covina, a man is approached by two men with batons. The men weren't your typical street thugs, they were dressed in ninja costumes.

The robbery took place in the 800 block of South Sunset Avenue, the 'Ninjas' chased after the delivery man with their batons raised. Frightened, the man dropped a package containing medical marijuana and money. That's when the ninja suspects grabbed the package, then fled the scene on foot, vanishing into the night.

Sgt. Travis Tibbets of the West Covina Police Department says the suspects are described to be in their early to mid 20s, thin stature and about 5 feet 8 inches in height. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Covina Police Department.
