Boys arrested in burglary at Vancouver pot shop

Two boys, ages 12 and 15, have been arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a Vancouver marijuana shop earlier this week.

The boys have been booked into the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center to face a burglary allegation, Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said in an email. The 15-year-old is also accused of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Vancouver police were dispatched at 2:34 a.m. Tuesday to Main Street Marijuana at 2314 Main St., for a silent alarm.

Kapp said that three males threw a cinder block through the glass door of the business, gained access and stole products. She did not provide an update about the third suspect.

Officers were able to determine that the burglars were using a stolen vehicle during the break-in and followed up on that lead.

Main Street Marijuana owner Adam Hamide said he believes the same burglars broke into his store several months ago. It was the second time the downtown shop was broken into within a week, and the sixth break-in between his two shops this year.
