2 teens arrested in burglary at South Seattle pot dispensary

Two teens were arrested for investigation of burglary after they were caught in a marijuana dispensary at 4:30 a.m. Monday with a backpack stuffed full of marijuana products, including more than 50 joints, Seattle police say.

According to police, officers responded to a reported burglary at the dispensary near 42nd Avenue South and South Brandon Street in South Seattle. They looked through a broken window and saw a suspect “peering through it,” police said.

Officers ordered the burglars to come out and two boys, ages 15 and 16, emerged, police said.

One teen was released to his mother and the other was taken to a crisis residential center, police said.
