SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Police are investigating after an improvised explosive device was thrown through the window of a South Lake Tahoe marijuana dispensary [Patient to Patient Collective] on the eve of a marijuana holiday.
“Erika Triglia, manager at the dispensary, said the device was a PVC pipe containing sulfur and a fuse. The suspect targeted the room where the collective typically keeps maturing marijuana plants, Triglia said. The incident was an attempt to kill the plants by clouding the room with excessive amounts of sulfur, Triglia said.”
“According to Friday’s statement, the Douglas County Bomb Squad removed the device from the building, rendered it safe and booked it into evidence for processing.
Triglia said the device was removed by her husband, Matt Triglia, who operates the collective. She questioned the need for the bomb squad’s robot, as well as police overtime in the response to the incident.”
