A post that really has very little to do with drug policy (other than perhaps another reminder that with legalization, pot becomes less valuable to steal).
Three soldiers try to rip off a dispensary and manage to get themselves locked inside the dispensary (yet outside the safe holding the marijuana and cash).
While several officers guarded the front, Langlais went around to the back and saw that the door knob had been knocked from the door and was lying on the ground, leaving a large hole.
Through the hole, Langlais said he saw a “dark-colored finger” poking at the dead bolt, which had apparently re-engaged in the door jamb after the break-in.
“I announced ‘Police!’ at which time the finger quickly retracted into the business and I immediately heard at least two voices screaming profanities,” he wrote.
After being arrested, two of the suspects told officers they broke in with the best of intentions: They were going to steal the marijuana not to sell or smoke but to destroy it, Langlais said.
