Thieves slam car into medical marijuana dispensary near Forest Park –

This is one in a string of incidents in which thieves have tried to break into cannabis stores across the St. Louis region

ST. LOUIS — St. Louis police are in search of a group of men that ran a car into a cannabis store on Vandeventer in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood early Thursday morning.

Luxury Leaf, which held its grand opening in February, drilled and boarded up its front doors after the group attempted to break into the store.

According to a report, officers received calls for “Shots Fired” in the 1500 block of Tower Grove and a “Burglary Alarm” at 3:45 a.m.

The preliminary investigation revealed two men, who were at an auto shop next door, heard a loud crash at the store and witnessed a blue Hyundai back into the entrance of the store, damaging its doors.

The men also observed a Silver Chrysler 300 and a dark-colored car at the scene.

Suspects in both cars fired several shots at the two men, striking only their cars.

They fled in their vehicles and got away, according to the report.
