Cops looking for pot thief

Vancouver police are hoping the public can help them locate a violent marijuana thief.

On Nov. 4, 2017, just before 1 p.m. a man entered the Weeds Glass and Gifts marijuana shop on Victoria Drive near East 34th Avenue, assaulted a staff member and stole some product.

“After a brief conversation with a female staff member, the video shows the robber jumping onto the counter, assaulting the employee, and stealing product from the shelves,” said Const. Jason Doucette, adding the man then allegedly assaults a second staff member just outside of the store as he flees.

“VPD detectives have exhausted any leads to identify this man,” said Doucette. “We believe the high quality of the video will lead to someone recognizing him, and we’re asking them to call our investigators or Crime Stoppers.”

The suspect was described as medium- to dark-skinned, 19 to 25 years-old, 5'10" tall, with an athletic build, shaved dark hair, brown eyes and dark eyebrows.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the video, or who has information about this robbery, is asked to contact detectives at 604-717-8924 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
