Update below: You can say this about the group of burglars currently being sought by the Denver Police Department: They're not slackers. Over the course of two nights this week, the thieves are accused of swiping computer equipment and more from four separate South Oneida Street office buildings. Wonder if they took a coffee break? Or the coffee machine?
Look below to get more details from a DPD release, and to see photos of the men in action:
Denver Police Department release:
On July 21, and July 22, 2010, between the hours of 10:30PM and 7:00AM, unknown suspects burglarized four office buildings located at 2121 South Oneida, 2055 South Oneida, 2050 South Oneida Street and 2250 South Oneida Street. They gained entry to one of the buildings by breaking a glass window. It is unknown at this time how they entered the other three buildings. Once inside, the suspect entered the offices by forcing the doors open. It is estimated that they caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to the doors. The suspects stole computer equipment along with miscellaneous items.
The suspects are seen in the attached pictures taken at 2121 S. Oneida Street in the hallways wearing some type of mask and entering offices. The suspects were possibly driving a newer model, white, 4-door, Ford pickup truck with custom wheels.
If you have any information regarding these burglaries or the suspects, please contact the Denver Police Department at 720-913-2000 or call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). You can text to CRIMES (274637) then title DMCS and enter your message or send an e-mail to metro-denvercrimestoppers.com. If the information you provide leads to the arrest and charging of a wanted individual, you can receive a cash award up to $2,000.
Update: As you can see, the DPD report above doesn't mention specifics about the businesses hit -- but Channel 9 has learned that one of them is Altitude Organic Medicine South, a medical marijuana dispensary that shares a name but not direct ownership with Altitude Organic Medicine's Highlands branch, which shut down earlier this month in a zoning dispute that could spawn a lawsuit against the City of Denver.
AOM South has reportedly provided Denver cops with security camera footage. Page down to see more images of suspects:
