Bur­glars rip front door off pot dis­pen­sary.

Bur­glars used a truck and chain to rip the front door off the front of a pot dis­pen­sary in Colorado Springs early Thurs­day morn­ing but were un­able to get to the rear of the business where the mar­i­juana was ap­par­ently kept.

The break in and bur­glary of the pot dis­pen­sary hap­pened at 3:30 a.m. in the 5000 block of North Academy Boulevard.

The bur­glars were caught on se­cu­rity video back­ing up to the business in a truck, at­tach­ing a chain to the front door and vi­o­lently tear­ing the door off its hinges, ac­cord­ing to a Colorado Springs po­lice re­port.

But the video also showed the crooks were thwarted by an in­te­rior door lead­ing to the rear of the business.

A pri­vate se­cu­rity guard ar­rived at the pot shop and found the dam­age to the dis­pen­sary, the re­port says. Po­lice from the Falcon Divi­sion were then called to the build­ing.
