ST. LOUIS – Police are investigating three possible break-ins Monday at marijuana dispensaries.
They all happened within about one hour of each other. The first one happened at about 4 a.m. at Star Buds Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Festus. The front door was smashed.
Police were also called to Swade Dispensary on Delmar Boulevard less than an hour later. Officers were on the scene but there was no visible sign of a break-in. Lastly, officers responded to a break-in at Good Day Farm on Euclid Avenue at about 5:00 a.m.
There were five to seven suspects involved in the burglaries at the Swade and Good Day Farms dispensaries. They took boxes of products from the Delmar Boulevard location. The suspects could not get into the vault at the Central West End building. Police said the men left in a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Hyundai Elantra, and an unknown black SUV.
