Vape Shop Break-In Suspects Identified

By Patrick Sullivan | Jan. 7, 2020

Police identified two teenage suspects in a break-in at a Blair Township vape shop.

Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s deputies responded to GT Vape on US-31 near Chum’s Corners between 2am and 3am Friday after someone threw a rock through the business’s front window, triggering an alarm.

The two culprits were in and out of the business quickly, getting away with several hundred dollars in merchandise after causing $1,000 in damage and escaping before deputies arrived, Capt. Randy Fewless says.

Over the weekend, investigators reviewed surveillance footage from the vape shop and a nearby business. A community police officer identified two suspects in the case, two teenagers from Interlochen who Fewless says are expected soon to be arrested on charges of breaking and entering and malicious destruction of property.
