A Denver dispensary was robbed of $250,000 worth of medical patients medicine last Monday morning. Until the new constitutional amendment in Colorado is fully implemented, medical dispensaries are at risk. With an operational black market still intact the high quality cannabis grown for and at dispensaries is a prime target for individuals trying to make their last quick buck. If Colorado plays its cards right, the price of legal, recreational marijuana will be low enough to dry the black market up. If they don’t, there will be far more available targets in the future, dispensaries and retailers be warned.
Denver police are searching for two people who broke into a marijuana dispensary early Monday morning and stole more than $250,000 worth of marijuana.
The theft occurred at the Fox Street Wellness at 4773 N. Fox St., near West Warner Place, in the Globeville neighborhood.
Hunter said the pair got away with $250,000 worth of product in less than 20 minutes. The plants and strains he said were still curing and drying and weren’t yet on the store’s shelves.
The dispensary is now offering a $5,000 reward hoping someone will recognize the men before they strike again.
If you recognize either of the people pictured, called Denver police Detective Larry Dale at 720-913-0532. You can also call Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous and be eligible for a $2,000 reward. Crime Stoppers’ tip line is 720-913-7867. It is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
