Armed robber makes off with more than money

KANSAS CITY, Missouri - A local coffee house becomes the target of a possible synthetic marijuana robbery.

It happened at the Coffee Wonk in the 3500 block of Broadway when the robber was looking for something other than a caffeine buzz.

The owners say the man entered through the back door and displayed a miniature assault rifle.

The suspect then demanded money from the registers and some containers of "Syn" incense.

This particular incense has been compared to K-2 for exhibiting marijuana like properties when smoked.

The man dropped one of the containers before making his escape on foot.
