Two Vancouver cannabis shops were burglarized Saturday morning, and police suspect the same two people in both break-ins.
Vancouver police officers responded about 6:20 a.m. to Main Street Marijuana, 2314 Main St., in Uptown Village, for a report of a commercial burglary that just occurred. Police dispatch logs show 911 callers reported hearing an audible alarm coming from the business around the same time.
About a half-hour later, officers were dispatched to New Vansterdam Recreational Marijuana Dispensary at 6515 E. Mill Plain Blvd. for a commercial burglary in progress.
Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said in an email that the shops were burglarized by suspects who forced their way inside and smashed display cases, “stealing unknown merchandise.”
“It appears that both burglaries involve the same two suspects, a tall male and a shorter male or female,” Kapp said. No other information was immediately available.
