DENVER -- Shattered glass covered the parking lots of several Denver businesses along South Broadway Tuesday morning, after crooks smashed windows and doors overnight.

A strip mall at Alameda and South Broadway had three businesses targeted -- a Subway, a UPS Store, and a Cost Cutters salon all had their doors smashed. It wasn't clear if anything was taken.

The Green Depot marijuana dispensary also had a glass wall smashed out.

An employee told Denver7 the burglars "caused a few thousand dollars of damage, committed a felony, but didn't get a gram" of marijuana.

The four men were caught on surveillance video, but were wearing masks and gloves.

Denver Police believe the same people may be responsible for 14 burglaries overnight.

The burglary spree started at 3 a.m.

Police are looking for a late 1990s teal or green Honda Civic.

Investigators are trying to determine if the burglaries in Denver are connected to burglaries in other jurisdictions in the metro area.
