One of the customers and a delivery driver dived behind the counter, fearing for their lives.
The driver warned people to lock the doors and ran out of the back of the shop to frantically call police.
Police bodycam footage then shows armed officers arriving and ordering Griffiths to walk backwards out of the shop with his hands in the air.
While being handcuffed, officers are heard telling Griffiths they were responding to reports of a man with a weapon, to which he replies:
A warrant was then obtained to search Griffiths’ home nearby, and it was discovered he was hiding a cannabis factory.
Griffiths was jailed for 20 months last month after pleading guilty to cannabis production and possessing an imitation firearm in a public place with intent to cause fear of violence.
