Nearly $30k in medical marijuana concentrates stolen from Colorado Springs dispensary

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Nearly $30,000 worth of marijuana concentrate was stolen early Monday morning from a medical marijuana dispensary near the Mountain Shadows neighborhood of Colorado Springs.

Security camera footage just outside the dispensary, called Dabarado, shows that it took the suspects nearly 15 minutes to pry open the back door at about 4 a.m.

The suspects made two quick trips inside once they got that door open and stole around a thousand grams of concentrate. They fled in a hurry, dropping much of what they had stolen in the shop and just outside.

"It's really disheartening. I know, we're in tough times right now. I know a lot of people are struggling. I've dealt with it personally in my life where I live. I just don't think people need to go as far as they went today," Dabarado manager Marissa Fonseca said.

Marijuana dispensaries cannot get insurance either, meaning Dabarado will be out more than $27,000 with no way to reclaim that money unless the suspects are caught.

Officers from the Colorado Springs Police Department responded to the scene and dusted for fingerprints, but the suspects are still on the run.

The owners of Dabarado are offering a reward if anyone from the public sees the security video and can provide information that leads to an arrest.

    Why can’t they get insurance, a Pharmacy is insured And if this is a medical facility they should be granted the same protection. I am betting they can’t afford the insurance, not that they cannot get insurance.
    And by the burglary statute 18-4-203(2)(b):
    § 18-4-203. Second degree burglary
    (1) A person commits second degree burglary, if the person knowingly breaks an entrance into, enters unlawfully in, or remains unlawfully after a lawful or unlawful entry in a building or occupied structure with intent to commit therein a crime against another person or property.
    (2) Second degree burglary is a cl@ss 4 felony, but it is a cl@ss 3 felony if:
    (a) It is a burglary of a dwelling; or
    (b) It is a burglary, the objective of which is the theft of a controlled substance, as defined in section 18-18-102 (5), lawfully kept within any building or occupied structure.
