Local marijuana dispensary burglarized

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A thief broke into a La Playa-area medical marijuana dispensary early Tuesday and stole dozens of cannabis cigarettes.

A burglar alarm began sounding at San Diego Organic Collective on Shelter Island Drive shortly before 3:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

A patrol officer arrived at the shop less than three minutes later to find a front window smashed, along with merchandise display cases, SDPD Lt. Andra Brown said.

The operator of the dispensary told investigators the crook had stolen about 50 marijuana cigarettes, according to Brown. Surveillance camera images showed the man breaking into the business and several display cases with what appeared to be a hammer, she said.

A description of the burglar was not immediately available.
