Las Vegas Smoke Shop Tries To Get Ahead Of Would-Be Robbers With New Device

The hope with the UV spray is to identify suspects weeks after a robbery

A Las Vegas business is taking an initiative to stop crime. The owners of Smokes Mart located at Flamingo and Fort Apache say they’re tired of being the victims of robbery and attempted theft, so they plan to install a new crime-fighting tool that will help police track down criminals. “The more we get successful the more people attempt to go after us; rob us, said Amanda Dowdy, manager at Smokes Mart.

Dowdy says she recalls this past January when a group of young men came into the store with guns, forcing her and her husband to the ground.  She said they took all of the money and merchandise. “You don’t expect it ever, and when that happens it just feels like your not safe,” Dowdy said.

According to Dowdy, someone tried to break into the store again on Easter Sunday. “It’s always a fear to us each and every day that it’s going to happen again,” Dowdy said.
