BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — Two Butte teens who tweeted pictures of themselves with marijuana led to the arrest of two others suspected of robbing a medical marijuana shop last month.
The Montana Standard reports (http://bit.ly/Sq2Zko) police on Wednesday questioned the two who posted the tweets and were able to get information that led to the arrests of two boys, ages 16 and 17, on suspicion of breaking in to TNT Gardening late Aug. 22 or early Aug. 23.
Police say a brick was thrown through the window and two people, suspected to be juveniles, entered the business and took five jars of medical marijuana. Security video from the business recorded the burglary, but police were unable to identify the suspects.
Sheriff John Walsh says the teens who posted on Twitter weren't charged.
