From their facebook page, I hope it posts

Alright, here's the official statement. Last night the shop was burglarized. Every bit of inventory was stolen, and everything they didn't steal, they broke. The shop is a shambles. There are a few things I'd like you all to know.

First: I was never in this for the money. My prices were as low as possible because I was doing this to help people quit tobacco. It takes a special kind of scumbag to ruin someone who has launched an endeavor to help his fellow man. This was my dream job, the one that doesn't feel like work. I will not let it die.

Second: Someone is running around with a couple hundred ego kits, about a dozen Sigelei mods, about a dozen Reo mods, several hundred batteries and thousands of dollars worth of parts and accessories. The Sigelei and the Reo are rare around here, I can't imagine there are more than 10 others in the state. If you see someone trying to sell these things, please contact the Casper Police Department immediately. I am personally offering a $5000.00 cash reward for any information leading to the arrest of the guilty parties and the recovery of my product.

I would like to offer my sincerest apologies to my valued customers. It feels as though this was designed to shut me down. I can't let that happen. I have helped nearly a thousand people quit tobacco, and I can't let you go back to it just because someone has a pry bar and no moral fiber. I will fix this as fast as is humanly possible, and will be back up and running in no time. If it takes more than a few days, I will find an alternate way to get liquid to you.

Thank you all very much for your patience and understanding. You are all more than customers to me, and I am here to help you as much as possible. Feel free to send me an email if you are in dire straits on liquid or equipment and I will personally get you fixed up right away. wyomingvapor@gmail.com

I hate to see any scumbag rob anyone, no matter how large or small. Thievery is one of the lowest sorts of action.

Beware of ppl selling these vape items on craigslist, ebay, etc from Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and states near there. These states are sparsely populated and I'm guessing vapors are few and far between...the thief possibly crossed the state line soon after the robbery. Just thinking out loud here...

on another note, with that kind of inventory, vendors/shops should really be investing in a security system!!

I'm really sorry. I hope they're able to come back from this and I hope the perpetrator(s) are caught. No fears of my buying hot vaping equipment. I'm just buying basic stuff from regular vendors, but it was a good idea to spread the word like that.

It's bad enough they stole everything, why the need to smash everything up? I hope you can recover from this and I hope the Vapers in the area are able to keep vaping while you set up shop again. I would definitely invest in a good security system before you stock up the store again.
