Pacheco said the men tied up two employees before taking an undisclosed amount of marijuana.

The men then took cellphones and car keys from the employees. They fled in one of the employees’ vehicles, a 2003 silver Honda CRV with New Mexico license plate 863-PCN. Deputies are trying to locate the vehicle.

An owner of the business reached by phone had no comment.

Pacheco did not know how long it took the employees to free themselves before calling for help. He said no shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery.
