Two Westmoreland County vape shops were raided Wednesday morning by police. One of the shops, District Attorney Nicole Ziccarelli said, was targeting children with illegal marijuana products. The police work continued through the day as authorities photographed and collected evidence at PA Vapor on Route 22 in Murrysville and Keepin’ It Glassy on Route 30 in Hempfield.
Ziccarelli said the Murrysville operation was the culmination of nearly a year of investigative work by police in Penn Township, Murrysville and Greensburg in conjunction with county detectives. Authorities said the investigation began after local high school students were found with vape and THC pens and anonymous complaints to police about minors purchasing illegal products at PA Vapor.
