During a traffic stop along Montana Avenue this morning, Billings Police discovered the Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary had been broken into.

The glass door at the front of the business was busted open, said Billings Police Sgt. Mark Cady. The broken glass was visible from where officers were conducting the traffic stop.

“That’s door’s kind of hard to see” from the street, Cady said, which is why investigators believe the break-in wasn’t reported sooner.

The Green Cross is open from about 9 a.m. to 7  or 8 p.m. daily, he said. Investigators think the break-in occurred sometime after closing, but not necessarily this morning when it was discovered.

“It may have happened in the middle of the night last night,” he said.

Investigators haven’t collected much evidence, but are following up on a name provided by the store’s owner. When police entered the store this morning, they found refrigerators open and desk drawers that had been rifled through.

The store owner told investigators items were missing. Cady declined to say what exactly had been taken.
