Davie smoke shop targeted same day Pembroke Pines shop burglarized

The owner contacted Local 10 after seeing Monday story

DAVIE, Fla. – Just one day after Local 10 reported a theft that was caught on camera at a Pembroke Pines smoke shop, the owner of another shop in Davie contacted WPLG, saying a nearly identical crime occurred at her store the same day.

Surveillance video showed the thief shattering the glass door at Vape Queen to gain entry Monday. The burglar headed to the back of the shop and pulled out an empty cardboard box before grabbing the cash box and heading out the door.

About an hour before Vape Queen was hit, the same thing happened at nearby Holy Smokes near 184th Ave and Pines Blvd in Pembroke Pines

In both cases, the thief only took the cash box. No electronics or products were stolen.

Police have not confirmed that the two cases are connected.
