Title: Otis Orchards Cannabis Store Suffers Damage After Break-In
In a shocking incident, the Apex Cannabis store in Otis Orchards became the target of a smash-and-grab theft. The perpetrators, believed to be three teenagers, used a stolen car to forcefully enter the building in the early hours of Sunday morning. They swiftly collected various cannabis products from the shelves and quickly filled their bags.
Fortunately, the burglars didn’t spend much time inside the store and chose to steal the less expensive items. While the damage to the building was minimal, the incident triggered the store’s alarm, alerting the authorities. Sadly, the thieves managed to escape in their getaway car before law enforcement could apprehend them. The stolen vehicle was abandoned at the scene, still running.
The aftermath of the break-in forced the store’s employees to close its doors temporarily while repairs were undertaken. Fortunately, a team of contractors promptly arrived on a Sunday morning to rebuild the damaged wall. The dedicated staff spent several hours meticulously counting inventory to assess the extent of the theft. Due to strict regulations, it is necessary to document and match the inventory with the previous day’s records.
Despite this unfortunate incident, Apex Cannabis is determined to reopen its doors on Monday, ready to serve its loyal customers once again. At this stage, the owners are unable to provide an estimate of the property damage or the amount of stolen marijuana.
If anyone possesses any information about the perpetrators or the case, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office requests that they come forward. Cooperation from the community will greatly assist in bringing the culprits to justice.
This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of security measures for businesses operating in the cannabis industry. Establishments should prioritize the implementation of surveillance systems, alarms, and other security protocols to prevent such incidents in the future.
Apex Cannabis hopes to put this unfortunate incident behind them and move forward with a renewed focus on providing quality products and a safe and welcoming environment for their customers. Their commitment to the community remains steadfast, and they look forward to rebuilding their business stronger than ever.
It is vital for the community to come together and support local businesses during challenging times. By standing together, we can overcome adversity and create a safer and more secure environment for everyone.
