Two Teens Arrested for Marijuana Burglary

Police arrested two teen-agers early Monday after they robbed a marijuana dispensary in the Columbia City neighborhood, stuffing a backpack with marijuana joints and other products.

When officers responded to reports of a burglary around 4:30 a.m., near 42nd Avenue and South Brandon Street, they saw a broken window at the business and a suspect peering through it. Officers called for the burglars to come out and two teen-aged boys, ages 15 and 16, emerged.

The suspects had more than 50 marijuana joints, containers of marijuana, oil, and other products in their packs. They were arrested on investigation of burglary. One teen was released to his mother, the other was taken to a crisis residential center.
