A wave of thefts has hit Vancouver pot businesses over the past two weeks, including two apparent ram-raiding attempts on medical marijuana dispensaries early Saturday.
Thieves drove a van through the front windows of Stressed and Depressed Association dispensary at 1353 E. 41st Ave. around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, manager Chad Rowsell said.
They made off with about $6,000 worth of marijuana, hash oil, edibles and other pot products.
The thieves didn’t gain access to the dispensary’s backroom, where more products were stored, but they did cause significant damage to the building, Rowsell said.
“I’m always concerned about this s—t happening, I have been from day one,” he added.
He said police were investigating the robbery but he’d learned that a suspect was taken into custody in South Vancouver later that morning.
