PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Police released surveillance photos Thursday in the hope that someone will recognize two people suspected of trying to torch a medical marijuana dispensary in Palm Springs last week.
A burglar alarm was activated about 2:30 a.m. June 14 at Collective Apothecary Prescription Service -- also known as C.A.P.S. -- at 4050 Airport Center Drive.
Responding officers saw that the glass front door had been broken, and used a fire extinguisher to put out a small blaze on the floor inside the lobby, said Palm Springs police Sgt. Mike Kovaleff. No significant damage was reported.
The police and fire departments are both investigating the case.
C.A.P.S. is one of three permitted medical marijuana collectives operating in Palm Springs, Kovaleff said.
Anyone with information about the fire was asked to call police Detective Marcus Litch at 760-323-8140, or Coachella Valley Crime Stoppers at 760-341-7867.
