Butte medical marijuana shop burglarized


BUTTE, Mont. - Another marijuana shop in Butte was broken into on Tuesday.

This is the fifth shop in three months broken into in Silver Bow County.

The burglary took place at the Rocky Mountain Medical Marijuana shop off  Continental Drive.

The shop's security system went off around 1:15 a.m. alerting the owner and  authorities.

Investigators say two or three people broke into the building through side paneling.

Police tracked footprints leading away from the building heading south, but those footprints eventually stopped at dry pavement.

"We've arrested people on a couple of the burglaries and now we're looking at video, looking for suspects and we're on the last two that happened in the last couple of weeks but we're still investigating those," said George Skuletich, Butte-Silver Bow undersheriff.
