Police Investigating $100,000 Pot Heist

Police are looking for a pair of burglars who tore through the walls of three South Seattle marijuana businesses early Monday and stole $100,000 worth of pot products before speeding away from the scene in a stolen car.

Detectives believe the suspects cut power to the three adjacent businesses in the 2000 block of 22nd Avenue South around 3 AM, rammed their way through a fence. The suspects then squeezed through vents to get inside the complex, which houses a medical lab and two medical marijuana grow operations.

Once inside, the suspects hacked their way through the walls separating the businesses until they reached the medical lab’s freezer, which was stocked with processed marijuana concentrates. The suspects filled several bags with pot products and then stole an employee’s car, which had been left overnight at the complex.

Detectives are now looking for leads in the case and are asking anyone with information to call (206) 386-1855.
