Drugs And Money Stolen At Gunpoint

Cookeville police today are investigating a reported armed robbery, in which the victims were robbed of several hundred dollars in cash ... and several ounces of marijuana. Police say it happened Sunday night at an apartment on Autumn Avenue. The victims, in their 20s, say two men who they know through a friend came into the apartment and one of them produced a gun, striking one of the victims in the head and firing a shot into the wall. The gunman then demanded the money and drugs, and the robbers left on foot, running north through the parking lot of the apartment complex. They got away with $900 in cash and about 86 grams, or just over three ounces, of marijuana.
