Police probe suspected arson at pot dispensary

SOQUEL, Calif.

Brianna Kovach, an owner of the Capitola Healing Association in Soquel, tells the Santa Cruz Sentinel that security cameras captured footage of two young males using a hammer to break the co-op's front window and then throwing a Molotov cocktail inside, setting off the burglar alarms.

Kovach says she and her co-owner Chris Morganelli, who live nearby, rushed to the scene and were able to put out most of the blaze with a garden hose before firefighters arrived.

Authorities say none of the surrounding businesses were damaged. No arrests have been made, and the co-op is closed until further notice.
