DENVER (KMOV.com) -- Thieves raided a marijuana dispensary in Colorado, and the owner believes there’s more to the crime than meets the eye.

The whole crime was caught on camera.

"For about two minutes, you can see them kind of shoveling the product into the bags, and then they take off," said dispensary owner Ryan Fowler.

More than 70 pounds of marijuana was gone within minutes, a total value of about $100,000.

But Fowler says the thieves only made it look like like a burglary.

“It is definitely an inside job," he said. "One of them had an orange or red crowbar in their hand, and tried to make it appear like they were jimmying the door open.”

But video captured one of the thieves using a company-issued key to unlock the door. Once he took inventory of the keys, all of them were accounted for except two, which belonged to two recently fired employees.
