I couldn’t be certain, but I followed the guy around the rest of the time he was in the dispensary
I got hired to work at a marijuana dispensary. I had to train for several weeks before I was allowed to have full-time hours. During one of my training days, we had a very busy Wednesday. It was the last Wednesday before the Christmas holiday and the store was packed with people during the day and at night. Shortly after that year began, I started working more hours. The first time I worked on a Friday night, I thought I was ready. I wasn’t prepared for the volume of people walking in and out of the dispensary all night. Our dispensary location is downtown by several bars and restaurants. The location stays open until 11 pm. The cannabis dispensary was packed with people all night. There were twice as many customers then the busiest shift I ever worked in the past. Customers were walking all over the store and it was part of my responsibility to make sure that no one was feeling. We have cameras recording everything, but we try to catch all thieves in the act so we can use the video proof for backup. While I was working, I witnessed someone trying to take the samples off the shelf. Samples have a small bud of marijuana flower and they are there for customers to see the flower and smell the strain. I thought I saw a customer pick one up and put it in his pocket. I couldn’t be certain, but I followed the guy around the rest of the time he was in the dispensary. When I thought I caught the guy taking another sample, I decided to alert the security guard. They stopped him out the door and found 8 stolen items on his person.
