Colorado Springs police credited the public's help with the arrest of three men suspected of burglarizing a medical marijuana dispensary Wednesday.

Farreal Williams, 37, Joseph Kennedy, 23, and 31-year-old Larry Gardner were arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary, criminal mischief, theft and conspiracy, police said. They were booked into the El Paso County jail, records show.

According to police reports, officers were dispatched to a burglary-in-progress at The Organic Seed, 2304 E. Platte Ave., about 9:50 p.m., when someone spotted three men running out of the store carrying plants.

While police were at the burglarized store, they received a call from a second witness who claimed to have seen three men carrying marijuana plants into a residence at the Courtyard at Willamette Apartments. Officers arrested one suspect for burglary at the apartments, police said.

Further investigation led police to a home on the 2500 block of East Dale Street, where they recovered two of the stolen marijuana plants and two men were taken into custody.

Anyone with information can call police at 444-7000.
