Police investigating burglary at Golden Leaf dispensary
The Steamboat Springs Police Department is investigating a burglary at one of the city’s pot shops.
Police sent out a very vague news release about the burglary that occurred early Wednesday morning at Golden Leaf, 1755 Lincoln Ave.
Commander Annette Dopplick said she did not want to say what items were stolen because, releasing details might prevent them from identifying the culprit.
Police released two photos from video surveillance at the pot shop.
One shows a man in a dark jacket with a hood next to a window at the front of the building, and it appears he is about to break a window.
The other photo is infrared, and it appears the man is reaching through a broken window.
A list of police calls from Wednesday morning does not include any alarms at Golden Leaf.
Routt County Crime Stoppers is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the identification of the suspect.
People can contact the police department directly at 970-879-1144, or they can remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at 970-870-6226.
Tips can be sent by text message by texting NABM, followed by the tip, to 274637. A confirmation text will then be sent.
