Three people told police they were robbed at a local apartment complex Tuesday, according to a Denton police report.
The officer met with the three individuals after being dispatched at 8:19 p.m. to the 3550 block of Quail Creek Drive in response to a report of suspicious people. The officer met with the trio and asked them what they were up to.
After several attempts to dodge the officer’s questions, they said they were at the complex to buy marijuana, but the person they were trying to buy the marijuana from fled with their money and didn’t give them anything in return, according to the police report.
The three did not want to cooperate with the officer’s investigation into the theft, the report stated.
