Update: $40K stolen from pot dispensary shuttered by state, inside job suspected

Update: Earlier this morning, we shared an interview with Conley Hoskins, an indicted medical marijuana entrepreneur who decried the shuttering of two dispensaries by a state agency; see our previous coverage below.

In the conversation, Hoskins mentions that about fifty employees went unpaid due to the shutdown -- and now he suspects a couple of them may have had a role in a robbery overnight that appears to be an inside job.
