DENVER -- Police in Denver are looking for a band of burglars who have been hitting marijuana dispensaries.

Investigators believe the same thieves have been breaking into dispensaries across the city and they've sent shop owners a special alert to be on the lookout.

The Denver Police Department releases a photo of the group pulling off a recent overnight break-in. They are well disguised and covered up, and are using a Jeep in the break-ins.

Police said the burglars like to steal vehicles, then hit marijuana shops after-hours. They pry open a door and grab whatever they can.
