Police officers in Denver are trying to identify two kids who stole $16,000 worth of marijuana from a dispensary in a rare robbery of such establishments.
Good Meds Network was robbed by two young boys who are thought to be around the age of 12, based on surveillance video.
Police aren’t releasing any of the footage of the robbery, which happened around 8 p.m. on July 21, for fear that they will become targets of violent drug dealers, according to 9News.
“Obviously we’re concerned here,” said Denver Police spokesperson Sonny Jackson. “We’re not sure what they’re going to do with it or who they’re going to contact. This is a situation where we want to find out where these kids are for their safety, as much as anything.”
The two boys were in the shop for about 25 minutes before leaving with the $16,000 worth of medical marijuana, which has been legal in Colorado since 2000.
A woman that answered the phone at the shop declined to comment.
Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP. You can remain anonymous and information leading to an arrest and conviction could result in a monetary award.
