Thieves steal drugs, cash

January 13, 2011

Unknown suspects stole medicine and money from a Newton pharmacy.

An employee at The Medicap Pharmacy, located at 401 W. A St., arrived at work Wednesday to find the store was broken into and property was missing.

Newton Police Capt. Kevin Yarborough said the incident occurred some time late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. The damage was reported at 8:50 a.m. Wednesday, and the business was last secure at 4:25 p.m. Tuesday.

Because of evidence found at the scene, police think more than one person was involved in the break-in. Yarborough didn't comment about what that evidence is.

The suspects gained access to the building by smashing the glass of the drive-through window. According to an incident report, it is unknown what weapon the suspects used to gain access into the building.

Yarborough said they took an undisclosed amount of prescription medication and cash from the store.

Officers are following leads, and the incident is under investigation.
