Boulder police arrested four men today in connection with the robbery of a clinic that dispenses medical marijuana.
New Options Wellness Clinic in the 2800 block of East Aurora Avenue was robbed at about 3:30 p.m.
Two robbers entered the clinic and first pretended to be registered medical marijuana users, police said. Then they stole two tubs of medical marijuana, cash and some surveillance equipment, Boulder police said.
Witnesses saw the men leave in a black Cadillac Escalade sport-utility vehicle and provided officers with a license plate number.
A police sergeant in an unmarked vehicle followed the SUV on U.S. 36, until patrol cruisers pulled the Escalade over near the Church Ranch Boulevard exit and arrested the four men inside.
The men were still being questioned at 8 p.m.Police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said the department would not release their names or other details until Wednesday.
