CHENEY, Spokane County — An employee of a Cheney marijuana shop remains missing after he was abducted at work.

The Spokesman-Review says 46-year-old Cameron Smith was working at the Lucid Marijuana store early Sunday afternoon when he was abducted at gunpoint after refusing to sell product to two customers.

Witnesses told police a male suspect entered the store but didn’t have identification, so store employees wouldn’t sell him product. Then a female suspect entered the store and was only 18, and was also denied product.

Cheney Police Capt. Richard Beghtol says video surveillance shows a man later walking up to Smith’s car, where he was eating lunch. The man pulled out a gun, fired two shots into the driver’s side window. The male suspect then drove away in Smith’s car with Smith still inside.
