Burglars caused more than $1,000 in damage and made off with some pricey bongs after breaking into Marc Emery’s Cannabis Culture Headquarters overnight Friday.
Jodie Emery said she and her husband weren’t sure exactly when or how thieves broke into the store at 307 West Hastings but said it was “very unusual” the alarm company didn’t notify the couple anything was afoot.
The perpetrators destroyed an empty cash register and made off with a trio of bongs valued at over $500 each, as well as 16 boxes of rolling papers, she said.
“I guess they think we have weed or something, but we don’t,” she said.
The store has been broken into in the past by “very inventive” people who have breached a massive double metal basement door and crawled in through a vent, but this time it’s a mystery as to how they got in, Emery said.
The couple has not yet contacted police but will be reviewing surveillance footage.
