A still from a Misty Mountain Canna Farm surveillance tape shows a pair of individuals suspected of breaking into the marijuana facility on Nov. 11. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Jacob Beach with the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office at 264-8443 or Archuleta County Combined Dispatch at 731-2160.

Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office personnel are seeking information on a pair of incidents that occurred recently in the county — one involving burglary and the other involving criminal mischief and criminal trespass.

The burglary incident resulted in six TVs being stolen from Wyndham condo units, reported ACSO Detective Sgt. Jacob Beach and Detective Monica Medina.

According to Beach and Medina, an ACSO deputy responded to the report of the burglaries on Nov. 19, with the burglaries believed to have taken place sometime between Nov. 16 and 19.

Medina explained that, at the time of the burglaries, Wyndham had several condos out of service that were awaiting maintenance, and the burglaries were discovered when the maintenance worker arrived at the units.

A total of six 32-inch Samsung LCD TVs were discovered missing from three different units, with two TVs taken from each unit, Medina noted.

A total of 40 units, however, were involved, with the units, all located downstairs, showing evidence that a break-in was attempted, Medina explained.

None of the TVs have been recovered, Medina reported, and it is believed they were privately sold.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Floyd Capistrant at 264-8450 or Archuleta County Combined Dispatch at 731-2160.

ACSO personnel are also seeking information on another incident that involved criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespassing.

According to Beach, an ACSO deputy responded to the report of the crime at Misty Mountain Canna Farm on Mill Creek Road on Nov. 12.

    Looks like an inside job. Big risk of getting shot for a few crappy TV’s. Had to be very confident in their success.

    I keep reading about Retail Marijuana coming into town with these huge licensing fees and regulations. How is a person like this allowed to operate what look like huge commercial grow houses?

    From what I’ve read, the Caregiver model doesn’t support or allow for this much production. This farm cannot sell to a Dispensary or store of any kind per State Law. WHERE DOES ALL OF THIS MARIJUANA GO?

    I would imagine a grow of this size gets investigated, right?

    A little time on Google lead me to a lot of questions.

    The grow is for one of the dispensaries… that’s where all the pot goes.

    No, no it does not.

    NO ONE call sell pot to a dispensary in Archuleta County aside from Good Earth Meds’ licensed grows or Pagosa Therapeutics licensed grows. Call the town, call the county, and ask.

    CANNA FARM IS NOT A STATE LICENSED GROW.

    NONE OF THEIR POT CAN BE SOLD TO ANY DISPENSARY. That’s pretty clear right?

    Please call the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division at Denver Office (Headquarter):
    455 Sherman St., Suite 390
    Denver, CO 80203
    303-205-8421

    Also, call the Colorado Dept Public Health and Environment as they register ‘CAREGIVERS’ which is the auspice that Canna Farm operates under.

    CDPHE Medical marijuana
    303-692-2184
    medical.marijuana@state.co.us

    So let me try this again…CANNA FARMS IS NOT A LEGAL GROW THAT SUPPLIES TO A DISPENSARY.

    My first call will be to the IRS actually, a grow of this size is never legit where it matters ;)

    Misty mountain canna farm is about as legit as a four dollar bill. I’d bet four dollars that this is their last harvest. If they want to be legit they have to grow on commercial zoned property. They keep getting robbed because they have blatantly disregarded county regulations, public safety and common sense.

    Actually, they are part of a dispensary… just operating under a different name. You people do know the dispensaries have legal grows, right. That’s where the product comes from. Canna Farms is legal and compliant. Why haven’t the law enforcement busted them. Instead, they’re asking for help in identifying the criminals who robbed them. And, I did not say they sold it to the dispensaries (if you actually read my one line post). I said it goes to one of the dispensaries.

    They don’t need to be zoned commercial… the cannabis is not sold there. It is grown and harvested there, therefore, it only needs to be zoned agricultural. Get the facts straight. I guarantee this will not be their last grow… because, they are legal and compliant with CO state laws.

    To grow for a dispensaripy you have to have a state license. They don’t, and they can’t get one in this county unless they grow on commercialy zoned property. You are a liar and I’ll gladly call you out on that.

    State laws are changing and the grey areas are getting harder to operate under. I’m pretty confidant that by next December you will owe me four dollars.

    What dispensary are they growing for? Name and address please.

  11. Boarder

    A little free advice. Follow the laws or stay in the shadows. Your ileagle commerce has brought criminals to your door. They come back and rob you while you sleep.

    They grow for a dispensary like ISIS is a charity. Liar

    By the way, if the dispensary you are talking about is coyote janes, that’s not league either

  14. mojo280

    December 6, 2015 at 10:02 am

    That’s a new one. I’ve never heard of ISIS claiming to be a charitable organization. Did you hear that on Faux News? Some dispensaries have on site grows and others have off site grows, but either way, you do realize their grows are legal? They are all monitored (hence the camera footage of the thieves). You should probably call the cops or DEA. Call the IRS, as you previously mentioned, as well. And once again, you do realize the story is about thieves breaking into the LEGAL grow? The story is not about an illegal grow. Most people know where this grow is… including law enforcement.

    There are 2 legal dispensaries in town… 1 on Bastille and the other by the airport.

  16. mojo280

    December 6, 2015 at 10:21 am

    Obviously, they’re not in the shadows… they’re right off Mill Creek Rd. And what part of the fact that they weren’t arrested for their grow do you not understand? The Sheriff is asking for help in identifying the criminals. And Coyote Janes? They sell jewelry and art and have some smoking accessories in the back. You’re clueless. I guess Wyndham should be shut down, too… considering their commerce has brought criminals to its’ doors.

    Also, you need to educate yourself on the business model of the Colorado Dispensary. I you become a member at a dispensary, you sign over your right to grow your plants (which adults in CO are allowed to do) to the dispensary. That means they are your caregiver which means they get the product from your plants which you signed over the right for them to grow it and they are able to sell it… legally. In turn, you get member pricing for products in the store. Other states have studied the model in Colorado and are adopting the same methods. Nevada is currently following the same model. And, unfortunately, people get robbed… the majority are not grows.

    They don’t grow for a dispensary. You are a liar.

    Name the dispensary or shut the fuck up

    I won’t call the cops, DEA or IRS because I’m not a rat. But I will call you a liar to your face if you would like. Show up or shut up

  22. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 12:56 pm

    They are a dispensary. They aren’t connected to a dispensary. Anyone who says they are is a liar.

  23. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    I know more about the business model of a legit dispensary than you ever will mojo280. Lying is not an acceptable part of that model.

    They aren’t part of a dispensary, anyone who says they are is lying. There is a big difference between a caregiver and a dispensary. Like the difference between a moonshiner and a licensed distillery. I can’t give you a bandaid and claim I’m a doctor. Stop lying. If they want to be licensed they have to follow county regulations, which they choose not to.

  26. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 2:49 pm

    mojo280 is either to stupid to know the difference between a caregiver and a dispensary, or he is lying.

  27. Boarder

    Misty mountain canna farms has no connection to either of them.

  28. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    Mojo280, why would you rather have my comments deleted than tell the truth?

  29. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    It takes more than marijuana seeds and a Facebook page to be a dispensary.

  30. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 3:18 pm

    Fact: Misty Mountain canna Farms has no state license and no county license. They claim otherwise but that is just not true.

  31. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    Let’s make this perfectly clear. Misty Mountain canna Farms is not connected to any dispensary in the state of Colorado. They don’t have a marijuana license in Colorado or Archuleta County. Mojo280 is lying.

  32. mojo280

    December 6, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    Then why haven’t they been busted and shut down? And, giving you the benefit of the doubt as to whether or not they’re legal, how is it that it affects you. Are they bugging or endangering you in some sort of way? But, back to the original question, when they called the police on their “illegal operation”, wouldn’t they have been shut down immediately? And, what made you say Coyote Jane’s is a dispensary. I don’t think you know what your talking about.

  33. mojo280

    Commercial growers usually use clones.

  34. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 8:34 pm

    Misty Mountain canna farms does not have a state license for marijuana or a Archuleta County license for mayor I wanna. They are not associated with any dispensary. Anyone who says otherwise is just plain wrong. Stop lying and I will stop calling you a liar and they will stop deleting my comments.

  35. Boarder

    December 6, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    Mojo280 you were wrong about them being connected to a dispensary. They keep getting robbed. They have no licenses from the state or county. I have better things to do with my time. Lie to someone who doesn’t know better. I’m done with you.
