Someone did some major damage late Sunday to the outside wall of Maggie’s dispensary in North Baltimore’s Wyman Park neighborhood using a box truck.

Police spokesperson Det. Chakia Fennoy said someone driving a white truck backed it into the cannabis dispensary at 11:16 p.m. last night, leaving “a large hole in the side of the building.”

Suspects fled the scene on foot, and it’s unknown at this point if they took anything from the building, she said. Building inspectors have been called to the scene. Police have classified it as a commercial breaking-and-entering incident.

Local crafter Juliet Ames shared a photo on Twitter of the damage early Monday morning after police had arrived.

Ohhhh Hampden. Attempted weed heist at Maggie’s this morning.

A blue tarp was covering the gap in the wall as of later this morning, and pieces of rubble sat piled up nearby.

A staffer at the dispensary said no managers or owners were immediately available to comment on the break-in.

The Maggie’s website includes a special notice at the top of the page saying the business is closed from today through Wednesday for building repairs. “We are very sorry for the inconvenience,” it reads.

Fennoy said police weren’t immediately aware of any surveillance footage from the scene as of Monday morning.
