Teens break into dispensary and end up stealing oregano instead of weed

These thieves definitely didn’t get high, but they probably did end up smelling like Italian seasoning.

A group of teens recently stole a van and crashed it into Native Roots, a pot shop in Colorado. They then raided the dispensary’s display cases and left with what they thought were armfuls of weed.

Brent Wrathbone told KKTV that he was leaving work when he heard “this big old crash.”

“[The suspects] came out with bunches of marijuana in their arms,” Wrathbone said.

Except it wasn’t the herb they expected. According to Native Roots’ owners, the shop doesn’t put real weed on display. Instead, they put out oregano and keep the real marijuana elsewhere.

“All of our product was locked away,” communications manager Kim Casey told the local CBS station. “Even those items in the display case are all display. They are unmedicated product.”

She told KKTV that they thought they got away with pre-rolled joints, but it was just oregano in rolling paper. They did successfully steal a some shirts, though. They also left thousands of dollars worth of damage to the store from ramming the van into the building.

“The damage people have done to get high,” Wrathbone told KKTV, “It’s just not worth it.”

Except, they didn’t even manage to get high in the end.

A group of teens broke into a Colorado Springs marijuana dispensary where they made off with a bunch of herb … oregano.

The teens allegedly stole a van early Thursday and used the vehicle to smash through the Native Roots’ storefront, where they stole a number of items from the dispensary’s display shelves, according to local KKTV 11 News.

The dispensary’s owners said while the group, believed to be four teens, caused thousands of dollars in damage, they didn’t actually get any of their product.

“Our product is never out,” Kim Casey told the news station. “We have pre-rolled joints on display in our display cases. We do not put actual medicated product in them, so we use oregano to simulate the cannabis.”
