Medical marijuana dispensary burglar thin enough to squeeze between bars in door

To be a good burglar, a person needs stealth, toughness and a faulty moral compass. But apparently being bizarrely thin helps, too.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, a medical marijuana dispensary located at the posted address of Colorado Cannacare was robbed of paraphernalia, not weed, over the weekend -- and the scofflaw apparently gained access to the building by throwing a rock at the door and then squeezing between its bars. Maybe he's gotten really good at holding his breath. Get more information from the CSPD below:
