Tarmo Hannula/The Pajaronian Police investigate a burglary at the Hook dispensary on Hangar Way early Saturday morning.

Watsonville Police are investigating a burglary by as many as 12 armed suspects that occurred at a Watsonville cannabis dispensary, which ended with a chase over Highway 1 by several law enforcement agencies.

The chase by WPD, California Highway Patrol, Scotts Valley Police Department and other agencies included a BMW, a Porsche, a Mercedes Benz and a Jeep. 

It reached over 100 MPH and led over Highway 17 and into Hayward. A spike strip placed near Mount Hermon was unsuccessful, and no arrests were made.

The incident occurred just before 5am at The Hook, which opened in 2021 as Watsonville’s first retail marijuana outlet. A nearby business was also burglarized.

The suspects left a trail of cannabis products scattered  in the parking lot of the business. It is unclear how much product was stolen.
