Just after four in the morning on Friday the 13th, someone broke into the front door of "Medicine Arts Pharmacy" on the 31-W bypass. The thief got away with $2,708.00 worth of hydrocodone and other drugs. The suspect wore a thick jacket with a hood, a mask, and gloves.
This is similar to a burglary at "Nation's Medicine" at 830 Fairview Avenue early Christmas morning. That time, two burglars forced their way into the drug store, and also stole a large quantity of hydrocodone.
Police say one of the thieves is a large, black male with glasses. The other wore a mask and yellow gloves. They stole the pills and got away in less than three minutes.
