One-Day-Only Pot Shop Worker In Dorchester Helped Armed Robbers Find The Goods, Prosecutors Say

August 12, 2022

A Roxbury woman who used a fake name to get work at a marijuana shop in Dorchester helped two armed men steal $27,000 in cash and drugs during her only day on the job, prosecutors say.

The 27-year-old woman claimed that the two men held up the store Monday, August 8. But surveillance video shows the two men showed up 35 minutes before the robbery and retreated after the woman gestured to them, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.

The next day, the woman didn’t show up for work and told a store manager she wanted to quit. When she showed up Wednesday, August 10 for a final paycheck, though, “She was instead met by police,” the district attorney’s office said in a written statement Friday, August 12.

At arraignment on an armed robbery charge in Boston Municipal Court on Thursday, August 11, the woman was released on $5,000 bail.
