PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Smoke Buddy, a mobile marijuana shop, was robbed Thursday morning.

The owner of the cart was opening the trailer for the day at N. Alma Ave. and N. Willamette Blvd. when a man and woman walked toward the cart. Police said the suspect tried to open the trailer door with the owner, Larry, still inside. The two fought and the suspect pulled a knife.

The suspect then walked over to a car where the second owner of Smoke Buddy was sitting inside. The man grabbed some items from the trunk of the car and a second suspect, a woman, jumped onto Larry’s back.
