A car crashed into the front of a cannabis dispensary in Seattle early Thursday morning, with suspects stealing several items from the displays.
Seattle Cannabis Co., which is located at the 7200 block of Rainier Avenue South in the Rainier Valley neighborhood, was targeted by thieves who crashed a Kia into the doors just before 3:30 a.m.
Officers arriving at the scene found a Kia Forte in the front of the building. The car that was used to break into the store appears to have been stolen because its ignition was punched out, Seattle Police Det. Judinna Gulpan told KIRO 7.
A resident of the area, Oscar, said given the crime in the area, he knew it was only a matter of time before the dispensary got hit.
“The neighborhood is pretty bad, and the store has been here about as long as I moved over here so about three years,” he told KIRO Newsradio. “It’s a pretty busy store, but I’ve been suspecting that (it was) going to get hit sooner or later.”
The Seattle Police Department (SPD) has not released any details
