After hours, the thief pulled around to the back of the store. She had a bunch of tools to break into this smoke shop. When the suspect broke in, she unknowingly set off the alarm. The local police immediately responded to the call.

Thief Busted Robbing Smoke Shop

When the officers arrived at the crime scene they spotted a suspicious vehicle parked behind the smoke shop that was just robbed. The suspect was sitting in the car while testing out some of the products that she had just stolen. That's a brilliant move.

The police searched her vehicle for clues. It's a dumb criminal so they didn't have to look too hard. There were a couple of thousands of dollars of stolen cannabis sitting on the driver's side seat along with the tools to break into the joint. She'll have some much time in jail to think about it.
