LANSING — For the second time in three weeks, Ahmad Rashad Ross has been charged with breaking into a medical marijuana dispensary.
The 34-year-old Lansing man was free on bond in a previous dispensary break-in case when he was arrested early today in connection with a burglary at 420 Solutions, a dispensary on South Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, south of Cavanaugh Road, according to police and court records.
Officers spotted Ross walking in the area, and a police K-9 team followed a track from the dispensary to where Ross was standing, Lansing police spokesman Robert Merritt said.
Ross was arraigned today on a felony breaking-and-entering charge in 54A District Court. A judge set a $250,000 cash bond for him.
He also is charged in connection with a similar incident at Capital Dank, a dispensary on South Washington Avenue, on Feb. 1, exactly three weeks before today’s burglary.
In that case, police said they followed shoe prints in the snow from the business to where Ross was found about two blocks away. He had merchandise from the store when he was arrested, they said.
Court records show that Ross waived his right to a district court review of the charges and was ordered to stand trial on charges of breaking and entering, felony firearm possession and being a felon in possession of a weapon. He posted a $5,000 cash bond on Feb. 17, the records show.
In the newest case, police were called to 420 Solutions about 2:45 a.m. today and found that someone had broken into the business, Merritt said.
