Armed Robbery of Seattle Dispensary FOILED by Remote Viewing of Security Cameras

Video Surveillance is essential to your business and now with OLCC requirements to have every entrance and exit of your site under surveillance your product is safer than ever. Just last Sunday night a marijuana store in Seattle was robbed by two masked men who then held the employees at gunpoint while they ransacked the store.

Thankfully, the store had remote video surveillance and an employee working from home was keeping watch on the cameras. When he saw the robbers enter the store and hold the employees up at gunpoint he called the police immediately. The police were able to find out exactly what was happening with the robbers because of the cameras all over the store. They arrested the robbers right as they left the store and none of the employees were physically injured. If the employee who called the police had not been monitoring the cameras the police may not have caught the robbers and the employees could be at risk again. If the police had not caught and arrested the robbers the video surveillance could still have assisted them in finding the perpetrators. Regulations are in place to help cannabis business owners and this is just a time when it paid off to have offsite monitoring.
