Batavian to Police: I Was Robbed at Gunpoint While Trying to Sell Pot

Here's the latest head-scratcher from the annals of the Batavia Police Department.

Sorry, but we have to ask this rhetorical question: If you're trying to sell pot, what would possess you to call the police and report that someone stole it from you?

An armed robbery took place in the parking lot outside Crown Liquors, 135 First St., according to a report at 8:42 p.m. Jan. 10.

The offender took the victim’s jacket, which contained his cell phone, keys and cannabis.
