The soldiers in Colorado Springs accused of robbing a medical marijuana dispensary say they planned to destroy the marijuana not use it. If authorities believe this, well it might as well be one of the greatest hoaxes because then why would they have been wearing ski masks or being frantic about locking themselves inside the dispensary?
Two of the three Fort Carson soldiers told officers they were trying to steal the marijuana so they could dispose of it, not smoke it. Police say the three men were arrested on second-degree burglary charges after they accidentally locked themselves inside the medical marijuana dispensary during the robbery attempt.
Officers say they were on an unrelated call nearby when they heard the robbery going on next door. It is unknown if any of the soldiers have an attorney right now, but what they are claiming as their defense is ludicrous. I feel sorry for the medical marijuana dispensary owners.
