The Denver police department issued a warning to the cannabis industry about an uptick in burglaries at marijuana dispensaries. Police indicate that the suspects broke into thirty-four (34) marijuana dispensaries during 2019 near major roadways using stolen Jeep Cherokees or Liberties.
The group of four men and two women use crow bars to enter the front door or through a glass window. Police are requesting that businesses ensure that motion sensors and outdoor lighting are working, and that video cameras are covering entryways. The police also recommends storing products in a safe when closed.
