Police investigate pharmacy break-ins

 

Police here continue their investigation into two burglaries at the Lifechek Drug store on U.S. 87 that occurred in a span of less than five days.

According to Sgt. Danny Pitts of the La Vernia Police Department, someone broke in through a drive-through window during the overnight hours of Dec. 18-19. The suspect -- or suspects -- stole 100 hydrocodone tablets and seven bottles of liquid hydrocodone before fleeing the store.

According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, hydrocodone is prescribed for the management of moderate to severe pain. However, it is “the most frequently prescribed opioid in the United States and is associated with more drug abuse and diversion than any other licit or illicit opioid.”

Pitts said that despite a storm that moved through the area on the night of the burglary, Lifechek and other nearby businesses serviced by the Guadalupe Valley Electrical Cooperative did not lose electricity, meaning that surveillance cameras likely captured an image of the perpetrators. Police are awaiting the release of surveillance video from the store’s corporate office.

At approximately 3 a.m. Dec. 23, the store’s security alarm alerted police that someone had again broken in through the drive-through window. The suspects stole beer, energy drinks, cigarettes, pocketknives, and candy before fleeing the store.

Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips to Wilson County Crime Stoppers at 830-393-INFO (4636) or http://bit.ly/NDrIut, where cash rewards are paid for information leading to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property.
