The five teens are facing one count of marijuana distribution, five counts of second-degree burglary, attempted burglary, two counts of theft, two counts of criminal mischief, one count of aggravated motor vehicle theft, possession of a handgun by a juvenile and first-degree criminal trespass across various jurisdictions. The teens were given bonds ranging from $1,500 all the way up to $50,000. Because they are being charged as juveniles, their names have not been released.
According to a release, the five are suspected to have robbed marijuana dispensaries between May and October in unincorporated Boulder County. Each time, glassware or marijuana was stolen and property was damaged.
In total, the teens are suspected of stealing 40 to 50 pounds of marijuana worth $47,000 to $82,000 and $2,000 worth of glassware. They also are accused of causing $13,000 in property damage.
