Video: Lexus rams into Oakland dispensary to let thieves walk in
OAKLAND, Calif. - Surveillance video captured the moment a Lexus SUV rammed into Ivy Hill Cannabis in Oakland.
The video shows that after the Lexus took down the metal door, a group of people walked inside the storefront on Wednesday about 4 a.m. to help themselves.
The general manager of the shop said the dispensary was cleaned out.
"They pulled up, three cars about 7 to 8 guys," said Hilary O'Brien. "They knew what they were doing. They’ve been trying to hit us for months and we keep thwarting them with our security. They knew exactly what they were doing today. They came with a plan, and they executed it. And they breached the building and they had about 6 or 7 minutes inside. And they took about $21,000 worth of product."
Oakland police are investigating.
