Last Friday, a group of thieves swarmed and overwhelmed a security guard in front of a cannabis dispensary in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The number of assailants isn’t yet known, but from security camera footage there appear to have been at least five or so and at least three getaway vehicles.
After rushing the security guard and relieving him of his firearm — which the criminals kept — they forced him inside Mountain Dew Farms where they did a little shopping, carrying many boxes of THC-laden inventory out to their waiting vehicles.
As KTVU reports . . .
One day after the brazen robbery Mountain Dew employees worked on putting new cameras in place on the exterior walls.
San Francisco police continued their investigation, meeting with neighboring businesses and looking for video of the suspects. “We haven’t confirmed the number of suspects,” said Officer Rueca. “We are stating that they are multiple suspects in a number of different vehicles. Right now we are still working without witnesses and working to analyze surveillance video that captured the incident.”
Other than distant security camera footage captured by a business across the street from the dispensary, it sounds like perhaps no video or other evidence was gathered during the robbery.
Weed dispensaries aren’t the only targets of his kind of grab-and-go larceny in San Francisco. Just last week . . .
