Deputies were dispatched to a commercial burglary alarm at a vape store. When they arrived, they saw that one of the glass windows was shattered. The owner gave deputies the surveillance video, which showed three juveniles arrive at the store in a gray Kia Soul. One of the suspects threw a large rock at the store’s window and broke it. The suspects made a larger hole in the glass and climbed through the window. They went straight for the vape pens and stole 10 boxes, valued at $3,250. The suspects fled in the Kia, which had been stolen earlier in the night from a nearby residence. Deputies recovered the stolen Kia earlier this morning; it had been abandoned on the side of Portland Ave.
