SEATTLE (AP) - An employee of a Seattle marijuana store watching the facility’s security camera system from home foiled a robbery attempt after seeing armed suspects enter the facility.

Police say the employee contacted them after the two masked suspects entered the north Seattle store Sunday night. Arriving officers were told the suspects were armed and tying up employees.

Police surrounded the businesses and arrested the suspects when they exited the front entrance carrying large duffel bags. A handgun was recovered from the scene. The employees of the business were able to free themselves and had run out another door. No injuries were reported.

The two suspects, ages 36 and 47 were booked into the King County Jail for investigation of robbery.
