The rob­ber over­pow­ered em­ploy­ees at Boul­ders Dan­de­lion med­i­cal mar­i­juana shop in Den­ver, US, by pos­ing as a de­liv­ery man be­fore blast­ing them with the spray.

The man, who was wear­ing a mask, ran off with £6,000 of the drug.

One mem­ber of staff was taken to hospi­tal af­ter in­hal­ing the gas and three oth­ers were treated at the scene.

The shop is beef­ing up se­cu­rity. Man­ager Lau­ren Gins­berg said: “We will be set­ting bound­aries. The num­ber one pri­or­ity is em­ployee safety.”
