An armed robber held up a marijuana dispensary in Victoria, B.C., getting away with drugs and cash, said police.

The suspect walked into the Farmacy on Scott Street on Thursday night and pointed what looked like a hand gun and knife at the store clerk, Const. Michael Russell said in a media release.

He then directed the worker to fill a black garbage bag with drugs and cash, said Russell.

The robber escaped in a tan-coloured Pontiac Torrent — believed to be a 2006 to 2009 model — without licence plates.

He is described as white, 5'8" tall with a tattoo near his right eye.

Victoria police surveillance footage of the suspect's escape, hoping the public can help identify him and his vehicle. (Watch video above.)
