Seattle detectives are reaching out to locals for help identifying suspects from a May 31 marijuana heist, which led to a loss of $100,000 worth of products.

In the video, two individuals can be seen scouting out the interior of a medical marijuana facility in the 2000 block of 22nd Avenue South of Seattle, near the Mt. Baker neighborhood. One of the men then proceeds to bash through a wall.

Thieves broke through multiple walls in the facility, rummaging through three medical marijuana operations. But that is not all they did to pull off their heist.

First they knocked out power to the three businesses, rammed through a fence with a car, squeezed through air vents to gain entry into the building, then bashed through walls inside the building to access a medical marijuana lab and two grow operations.

The thieves ultimately made off with $100,000 worth of marijuana products that they stuffed into bags including marijuana concentrates from the lab’s freezer. They also stole an employee’s car that was left overnight.

Seattle detectives are asking residents for any leads in the case. Any leads can be reported to 206-386-1855.
