BOTHELL, Wash. - Police are investigating after a car crashed through the entrance of a Bothell marijuana shop at full force overnight. It's the second time that thieves have targeted the store.

The incident unfolded at about 2 a.m. Wednesday when a car came barreling through the front of the Have a Heart pot business in Bothell, taking out a security gate. The suspects drove off afterward, leaving a gaping hole in the front of the store and a big mess inside.

The incident was captured on surveillance video, which shows the thieves grabbing containers of product and hustling it out of the store.

An employee at the store tells KOMO News he believes the suspects are the same ones who have tried to break into the store in the past. The shop has fortified its security since then, but it was unable to withstand the force of the impact.

The SUV believed to be used in the crime was later found along Interstate 405 in Bellevue. It had been reported stolen in Kent.

The shop's owners are working with police to try and track down the suspects.

No one was injured in the incident.
