Last Monday morning, I was the first employee to arrive at work.
I pulled into a parking space near the front of the building.
My boss arrived a couple of minutes after me and she took the spot next to me. We walked into the dispensary together. My boss unlocked the door and proceeded to the alarm to enter the code. Both of us thought it was strange that the alarm was not beeping when we entered the front door. I started heading towards the back of the building so I could put my jacket and my purse in the break room. That is when I saw the back door wide open. I screamed out loud to get the attention of my boss. I didn’t know if someone was in the building still and I was a little scared to be honest. My boss took out her cell phone and called the police. An officer arrived about five minutes later and he walked through the entire building to make sure that it was empty. The officer took our statements, even though we didn’t have a lot of information that was helpful. The camera in the back of the store has not worked for 6 months. We didn’t get any video of the thief. The person stole almost $5,000 worth of cannabis supplies. All of the edible cannabis snacks were gone. The shelf was completely bare. All of the live resin cannabis concentrate from the refrigerator were also missing. It seems like the thief had very specific products in mind when he broke into the store.
