WEB EXTRA: Smokes Mart takes new initiative to prevent intruders from breaking in

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Smokes Mart located near Flamingo and Fort Apache is taking a new initiative to stop crime. By the end of this week, Smokes Mart will install a device that may deter criminals or catch them. 

It’s called DNA Security Solutions, which is an odorless and colorless UV spray that can launch as far as 15 feet once alerted. The spray will then stay on the criminals’ skin for about 3-6 weeks. 

The system can be activated two ways: By remote button or through an under the counter panic button.

Owners say safety is their number one priority and that the investment is worth the cost.
