Citing figures from the National Retail Federation’s Organized Retail Crime Survey, the company reports that burglary and robbery are rampant among large and medium-sized retail businesses of all types.

With regard to drug store robberies, these have occurred in California, Oregon and Colorado, the company adds.

In 2019, a cannabis dispensary in Tacoma, Washington, was robbed in the early hours of the morning after thieves used their car as a giant battering ram to smash the front doors of the pot shop. A year earlier, four suspects again used a car to drive into a marijuana store in Seattle and steal goods. That same year, a Detroit medical marijuana dispensary was badly damaged when thieves drove a truck into the building and gained entry.

Some robberies and break-in attempts do not affect vehicles, of course, but are nonetheless dangerous and violent. In the past few months, there has been a break-in attempt at a cannabis grow in California in which a 20-year-old suspect died after being shot by police. A man in Calgary was sentenced to four years in prison for the armed robbery of a cannabis supply store. and a man in Minnesota faces threat of violence after allegedly yelling at medical pharmacy staff.

With U.S. states increasingly legalizing cannabis, Securitech suggests that the safety of retail locations and the safety of employees becomes increasingly important.

“As more pharmacies open, they become targets for burglars who they may see as under-prepared for break-ins. Put simply, standard commercial locks are simply not strong enough to withstand such attacks, ”argues Mark Berger, CEO of the company.

In addition to the Trident, the company is offering “new multipoint models for high-traffic entrances that are used by both employees and the public,” which it claims “offer maximum protection against break-ins and still operate with a simple low pressure Movement to unlock. “

Berger notes: “This is not the first time we’ve seen intruders being stopped by Trident-protected doors. It’s because they can withstand the greatest attacks. We have also received similar testimonials and videos. “

Both recreational and medicinal use of cannabis is legal in Colorado.
