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