Late Tuesday night someone broke into the Wyoming Vapor Company building, slicing through security camera lines and computer wiring, and getting away with over $20,000 in merchandise including electronic cigarettes, batteries and a number of accessories.

This statement was posted by owner Jason Magnuson on the Wyoming Vapor Company's Facebook page,

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.

Magnuson expects to be open today with what inventory he has left. Wyoming Vapor Company is located at 507 N Beverly and can be reached at 234-6707.
