4 teens accused of botched pot burglary in Silt

SILT, Colo. – A medical marijuana nursery where four teens are accused of trying to steal plants has gotten an apology from one of the accused teens.

The Garfield County teens, aged 15 to 18, face charges ranging from second-degree burglary and trespassing to misdemeanor theft in the failed March 15 nursery heist.

According to an arrest affidavit reported Saturday by The (Grand Junction) Daily Sentinel, one of the teens apologized to the nursery owner. The marijuana plants were being grown for a dispensary in Glenwood Springs.

Only the 18-year-old has been named, Jose Roldolfo Chavez of Fruita.

The burglary ended with the teens apprehended in fields nearby. One of the suspects told police they were planning to take the plants to Denver.
