Quebec police are investigating a break-in at a cannabis store over the weekend, according to several media reports. 

The break-in occurred at the Beauport SQDC location. According to Le Journal de Quebec, access was gained via the roof.

According to several media outlets, police were on-scene at the store following the discovery of the break-in by an employee opening the store Sunday morning.

The location is not expected to re-open until Friday, February 17.

No information was available as of press time from the SQDC or Quebec police on what was taken from the store. 

On Sunday, February 2, a 28-year-old man drove a vehicle into the front window of an SQDC location in Montreal. The man attempted to rob the location but was apprehended by police.
