The burglary was reported at about 1:30 a.m. in the 4000 block of Third Street.

A 27-year-old employee at the facility was sleeping when he awoke to a loud noise, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The employee called 911 and then saw on the building’s surveillance camera that two suspects had gotten inside, according to police.

Officers responded and discovered that a laptop had been stolen. They did a sweep of the building because the employee was unsure if the burglars were still inside, but no one was found, Esparza said.

The two male suspects had not been found as of this morning, he said.

Anyone with information about the burglary is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.

    And why was the employee sleeping at this business?

    Don’t pot dealerships take in enough money to pay their employees a sufficient wage to rent an apartment?
