Suspects arrested in Frisco medical marijuana break-in

Two men suspected of burglarizing a Frisco medical marijuana dispensary were arrested Tuesday by Frisco police.

Beau Waldren, 18, of Minnesota and Jeffrey House, 19, of Iowa, are accused of twice attempting to break into Medical Marijuana of the Rockies – once on Aug. 26 and again on Aug. 30. According to police, the men broke windows in an attempt to gain access but set off burglary alarms in both circumstances. While the alarm notified local law enforcement, both times the suspects were gone by the time officers arrived.

No items were taken during either incident.

The men were alone during the Aug. 26 attempt, but joined by a third accomplice on Aug. 30. Frisco Police are still trying to identify the third suspect in the case.

Frisco spokeswoman Theresa Paul is unsure if the men were visiting or living in the county short-term, but said they were about to leave town.

The store’s security system captured the suspects’ images on video from inside the building, which business owner Jerry Olson turned over to Frisco Police. An officer investigating the crimes observed two men on Main Street in Frisco Tuesday who appeared to match the suspects on the video. The officer contacted Waldren and House and determined the men to be the burglary suspects. One male admitted to his and his accomplices’ involvement in both burglaries.

Olson said the security cameras were installed only a few days before the incidents.

“That is what caught them,” he said. “We were able to provide such good video data that (the police) recognized them right away.”

Olson said he’s grateful to the officers for their detective work.

Anyone with information regarding the third suspect is asked to contact the Frisco Police Department at (970) 668-3579.
