Two recreational marijuana dispensaries in Aurora were burglarized early Wednesday morning.

The Lightshade Dispensary on Havana Street was hit at 3:17 a.m.

At 3:41 a.m., burglars smashed their way into the Starbuds on Del Mar Parkway in Aurora.

The Starbuds manager, Anthony Butler, told Denver7 several suspects smashed cases inside.

The suspects got accessories like pipes and some drinks and edibles, but the leafy marijuana was locked up, Butler said.

Police said three suspects in the Starbuds burglary, all juveniles, are in custody.

Investigators are trying to determine if the suspects are connected to both burglaries.

This is the second time this week that Starbuds has been burglarized. Butler said last time, the suspects were caught in the store.
