West Covina pot ninjas are possibly a thing. Detectives are reportedly searching for a pair that allegedly jumped from the bushes and robbed a medical marijuana delivery man, the L.A. Times reported.

Lt. Alan Henley said two men with masks over their faces allegedly chased a medical marijuana vendor in the 800 block of South Sunset Avenue, causing him to drop a bag that contained an unknown amount of marijuana and money. The suspects were equipped with batons and took the bag, Henley said.

The 40-year-old delivery man told officers the run in occurred just before 10 p.m. on Friday. Authorities said they were not aware of dispensaries in the area where the attack was reported, nor were they aware of any dispensaries that offered a home delivery service. Police are looking into...   all of it.
