Vape Shop is Hit by Augusta Burglars Who Shot Out Windows


Burglars shot out the window early Tuesday of Blazin’ Panda Smoke Shop on Deans Bridge Road in Augusta, according to a sheriff’s report.

The thief or thieves also disabled the surveillance cameras by turning off power to all of the business suites.

Business owner Caleb Ansley was called by the alarm company around 2 a.m. Tuesday and arrived to find the glass front door had been shattered, with multiple holes and 9mm cartridge casings on the ground. Inside, officers found a hole in the call containing a projectile and holes in two of the shelving units.

The burglars took cigars and Vuse pods for e-cigarettes.

On Facebook, Blazin’ Panda promotes itself as a black-owned business with five-star reviews. It has not been open long.

“Excellent customer service with a wide variety of products that are more than affordable,” said one Google review.

An investigation is underway.
