A group of still-unidentified men broke into two medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida, United States and the second burglary – in perfect coincidence – was committed at 4:20 a.m.

The thieves first struck the Trulieve dispensary at 645 Bayway Blvd. on Clearwater Beach at 3:43 a.m. on Feb. 21, local police said as per Tampa Bay Times on Feb. 22.

The group, made up of three men, reportedly took an unknown number of “inventory” from the first dispensary, according to the report. Around 40 minutes later, authorities believe the same thieves broke into another one.

Clearwater police said the thieves struck the Clearwater Trulieve location at 24639 U.S. 19, and security footage posted on their official Facebook account on Feb. 22 show the criminals arriving at the dispensary at exactly 4:20 a.m.
