Police search for multiple thieves after $700 stolen from Edmonton vape shop

Edmonton police are looking for help identifying three, possibly four thieves who robbed a northeast vape shop back in November.

At around 2 p.m. on Nov. 11, police say three people entered the store at 37 Street and 118 Avenue and stole about $700 in vape pens before fleeing.

According to police, the woman and lone employee at the shop was trapped at the locked door and sprayed with bear spray.

The thieves are described as Black with thin builds and under the age of 20. Police said two of the thieves were men and one was a woman.

The woman was last seen wearing red and black plaid pants and one of the men had red sweat pants with a red and blue jacket.

Police said a second woman was in the store at the time of the robbery and stole some items. However, officers say it’s not clear whether she was involved or “took advantage of the opportunity to steal.”
