(West Valley City-AP) -- Dude, not again. For the second time in a couple months, a West Valley City smoke shop has been held up by armed bandits.

The Wizards and Dreams shop has also been broken into eleven times since it opened in 2000.

This time, three men, wearing masks, entered the store on Saturday and assaulted the employees. They got away with about 70 bucks and some store merchandise. They sprayed a worker with pepper spray on the way out the door.

Last time, back in April, it was a similar scene. Three hooded men came in, handcuffed one worker and duct-taped another, then stole the loot -- including several marijuana-smoking bongs.

Police think the robberies may be related.
