CBD shop burglarized before its grand opening

Crime Watch

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — It’s not the opening day a new CBD shop hoped for — burglarized Friday morning before the grand opening.

Surveillance video from inside the store shows the burglar breaking in through one of the front windows as the smashed glass hits the floor.

The thief then goes cabinet to cabinet, opening the back to snap the loot at Junction CBD on Rosedale Highway, just west of Allen Road.

“There’s really nothing to steal here but pain management stuff … just topical oils and CBD oils,” store owner Cesar Malta said. “You’re better off hitting something more valuable, you’re wasting your time here.”

The thief also snagged the register from the front on the way out.

Malta says they’ll try again Saturday to hold their grand opening. He said they were able to make some sales to cover their losses.

The shop specializes in medical products derived from the hemp plant.
