Beaverton police are searching for a suspect who swiped a jar of marijuana worth $1,000 from a shop Saturday morning.
Officers responded to Growing ReLeaf on the 4100 block of Southwest 109th Avenue at 11:41 a.m.
Employees said a man grabbed the jar full of marijuana and ran out the front door. A worker confronted the suspect, but police said the employee was threatened and pushed to the ground by the suspect.
A woman was driving the get-away car.
Officers reviewed surveillance video of the theft and identified the suspect as 23-year-old Devonte Gregory Stewart of Portland.
Stewart was already wanted by Beaverton police for a theft at the same shop in February.
