BOULDER, Colo. -- Police are investigating an armed robbery of a Boulder hydroponic grow store that was captured on surveillance video.

The robbery happened just before 6 p.m. Saturday at Way To Grow (6395 Gunpark Drive) when a man armed with a rifle and wearing a white ski mask walked into the store and demanded money, the Boulder Police Department said.

The suspect is described as about 5-foot-8 and 160 to 170 pounds. He was also wearing bright gold ski goggles with a large white Oakley logo on the side, a gray long-sleeve sweater, blue jeans and tan suede boots.

He fled the scene in an "eggshell" white wagon-style SUV with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said they believe the robbery is connected to one that took place at a Way to Grow store in Adams County on Nov. 5.
