A group of would-be thieves recently tried to snatch a stash of weed from a dispensary in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And while they succeeded in breaking into the shop and stealing a bunch of merchandise, they didn’t actually end up with what they were looking for. Instead of getting away with jars full of bud, the thieves ended up stuck with jars full of oregano.
Smash-and-Grab Robbery at Colorado Dispensary
The Native Roots Dispensary in Colorado Springs was recently broken into in what local news sources are calling a “smash-and-grab” operation. The incident reportedly took place around 1 a.m.
According to witnesses, a group of teenagers drove a stolen van directly into the dispensary. The van smashed a hole into the building, and the people driving the van entered the shop.
From there, they reportedly stole jars of “herb” from the display windows. They also took t-shirts.
From the looks of it, the group was trying to get their hands on a nice stash of cannabis. But the owner of the dispensary told authorities that the thieves never actually entered the locked room that holds all the flower.
Instead, they mistakenly took the display jars—which are filled with oregano instead
