  Police Probe Break-In At ‘Smoke’ Shop  
  January 29, 2015 Edition  
     Boardman police are investigating a break-in on Jan. 17 at Pipe Dreamz, 5020 Market St. The company sells a variety of alternative smoking items and herbal products. One such product is known as kratom, said to be illegal/banned in Australia, Finland, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand.
      During the break-in at Pipe Dreamz, Ptl. Heather Dobbins reported more than a dozen bags of Maeng Da Kratom valued at an estimated $425 had been stolen. As well, police were told that $3000 in cash was missing.
