Three men are facing a slew of robbery and firearms charges after allegedly holding up a Vancouver pot shop at gunpoint.
The robbery happened at the Stressed and Depressed dispensary at Knight and 41st last Sunday, but the entire incident was captured in unusually clear surveillance footage.
It’s the third time the pot shop has been robbed since opening.
Sgt. Brian Montague with the Vancouver Police says on Saturday, police executed search warrants on two houses in Surrey and one in Delta arresting three men believed to be the ones in the images.
The woman pictured is still on the run.

28 year old Darnel Matsui from Medicine Hat is now facing five charges, including robbery with violence (firearm), unauthorized possession of a firearm, and uttering threats.
26 year old Hosea Smith from Calgary has been charged with robbery with violence and assault.
And a Surrey resident, Cory Robert Ulmer Brown, is facing four charges including robbery with violence and pointing a firearm.
The thieves made off with a quantity of cash and marijuana products, and Montague says while Stressed and Depressed will get their money back, they’ll lose the pot.
“We legally can’t return an illegal product to a victim, so if marijuana is recovered we have to put that in for evidence and then for destruction, we cannot provide it back.”
Police are asking anyone who recognizes the woman in the images to call 604-717-0613, or Crime Stoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
