Harvard, Massachusetts. (WHDH)-A 51-year-old man has been charged after police said he tried to steal from a recreational marijuana pharmacy in Hevalil on Wednesday.
Around 12:30 pm, an officer was called to the CNA store on River Street after Tony Hernandez wielded what looked like a BB gun and said he demanded cash and cannabis.
A representative of a veteran-owned store said employees pressed the panic button according to security protocols.
Officials said many things couldn’t escape before Hernandez was arrested just outside the store door.
Dozens of CNA customers pulled into the parking lot a few hours later to see the store closed and hear what had happened.
“I’m very busy. They have a lot of clients. It’s pretty painful to see them robbing this place,” said customer Anthony Nazarian.
“We are grateful for the prompt response by the Heyvalil police and that no one was injured. We are now reporting to our employees and providing the necessary support, while at the same time all staff and safety protocols. “We have confirmed,” Scott Winters, the store’s representative, told 7NEWS.
They say they have a lot of surveillance videos of the case and hope it leads to conviction.
Hernandez will appear in the Hevalil District Court on suspicion of armed robbery.
CNA will reopen Thursday morning.
