This comes after two other recent break-ins.
Sunday night around midnight, The Joint Smoke Shop, near 56th and North Cotner, also had their glass door shattered and smoking and vaping products stolen by multiple burglars.
The first in the string however occurred at the D & K Smoke Shop on February 6th. The burglars used a tool to shatter the front door, as well as a glass case containing vaping products. Over $1,600 worth of items were taken.
