$50,000 in marijuana stolen from Seattle dispensary

Someone cut a hole in the wall at a Georgetown medical-marijuana dispensary and made off with $50,000 worth of pot Wednesday morning, Seattle police said.

Officers were called to the dispensary in the 5000 block of East Marginal Way South at 6:50 a.m. and discovered a large hole had been cut into the side of the business, police said. Officers also found marijuana strewn around the dispensary.

The business owner told officers that thieves had taken $50,000 of medical marijuana.

An evidence technician was able to recover fingerprints and other evidence from the scene as well as video from surveillance cameras in the area.
