4 Med. Marijuana Dispensaries Hit Overnight


Four medical marijuana dispensaries were hit Monday morning in Colorado Springs.

The final dispensary hit overnight turned up some clues that officers hope will lead to an arrest.

Police say two suspects, wearing disguises, forced their way into the Total Health Care dispensary on the 1600 block of West Uintah around 2:40 a.m.

Surveillance video caught the suspects as they ransacked the business, but police are not releasing any suspect information because they believe these thieves could be connected three similar burglaries.

Prior to that, Happy Buddha Wellness Center on the 3600 block of Galley, We Grow Colorado on the 2500 block of East Bijou, and Rocky Mountain Miracles on the 2300 block of East Bijou were burglarized sometime between midnight and 1 a.m.

The suspects smashed in doors, but didn't get away with much: one owner tells 11 News the thieves stole an empty cash box.

At this time, it's not certain if the four burglaries are connected, but police hope information gathered at the scene on West Uintah will help lead to an arrest in all cases.

11 News is now working to obtain the surveillance video.

Anyone with any information on any of the burglaries is asked to contact police, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    It's good to know that these idiot's got nothing for thier troubles except for a few pipes and an empty cash drawer. It shows that MMJ dispensaries are doing an awesome job protecting thier industry and the public.

      I thought pot shops "where" "suppose" to cut down on crime... get a bedford handbook and learn the English grammer and how to spell. You sound like a drug addict yourself!

    huh. I wonder what they wanted.

    ...criminals breed crime...it doesn't matter if it's a Walgreens, 7-11, a bank or department store. The logic of most people posting is illogical. Maybe if those took the time to look at actual crime, and where, over the past year...you'd notice you could count the number of MMC issues on one hand - since 2008.

    The men were last seen running from a Walmart bakery after the burglaries took place. They were overheard yelling "I'm a Happy Buddha!". Walmart would like their brownies back.
