New vape store out $10K following break-in, says employee

VapouRevolution, a Yellowknife vape shop that opened its doors late last year, was allegedly burglarized earlier this week, according to its Facebook page.

VapouRevolution is out $10,000 worth of product after an apparent theft earlier this week. Mike Williams, the manager of the recently launched store, showed off some the store’s product during a Yellowknifer visit last month.

“We were broken into last night, bongs, glass, accessories stolen, displays smashed, till taken,” reads an all-caps message posted Wednesday morning.

“Please let me know if you know anyone involved in this,” the post read.
The Range Lake Road e-cigarette store, which offers a selection of vaporizers and cannabis accessories, opened up shop in early December, joining a host of other locations, mainly in western Canada, under the same VapouRevolution brand.
“The police are involved and are looking into some possible suspects at this time,” employee Austin Robertson told Yellowknifer Thursday morning, adding management won’t be commenting further until “police figure out their investigation.”
The alleged break-in resulted in $10,000 worth of stolen items and damages, Robertson said.
Yellowknifer is awaiting comment from Yellowknife RCMP.

As the Yellowknifer’s crime reporter, it’s my job to keep readers up to speed on all-things “cops and courts” related. From house fires and homicides to courtroom clashes, it’s my responsibility to be there - day or night, rain or shine. When I’m not at court gathering stories, I’m in the office, making calls to lawyers, emailing RCMP and tracking down sources. After hours, I rely on the public to let me know what’s happening and where. Entering my second winter in Yellowknife since leaving my hometown of Peterborough, Ont., in October 2017, everyday on this beat continues to be challenging, rewarding and fulfilling. Got a story?
