BILLINGS — One man was arrested in Billings Saturday morning after police said he and another suspect allegedly burglarized two medical marijuana dispensaries, according to the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office.
Nathaniel Steffeck and the other suspect allegedly used a stolen Hanser’s Automotive service truck and rammed both dispensary buildings to gain access, Undersheriff Sam Bofto told MTN News over the phone Tuesday.
Yellowstone County Detention Center Nathaniel Steffeck was arrested Saturday on two counts of burglary and criminal mischief after allegedly ramming a truck into two medical marijuana dispensaries in Yellowstone County.
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Montana Advanced Caregivers at 11010 S. Frontage Road near Laurel for a burglar alarm at 5:12 a.m. Saturday. Police said the security camera footage showed a Hanser’s Automotive service truck bash into the front of the building.
While still at the scene, deputies got a call for a second burglar alarm about six miles northeast at the medical marijuana dispensary Marimint at 6845 Niehenke Ave.
One of the responding sheriff’s deputies was a former employee of Hanser’s and knew the trucks were tracked by GPS. Hanser’s staff were able to use the GPS to find the truck at Pioneer Park
