Burglars still sought

Multiple agencies looking for male suspects

Atmore Police Chief Chuck Brooks said Tuesday that the police department is still looking for information on the two males who were videotaped stealing controlled substances from the Buy-Rite Pharmacy last week.

Brooks said a task force meeting was held in Montgomery with all of the jurisdictions affected by the crimes.

“We submitted our information up there, and we’re still looking for them,” he said.

On the day the males stole from Buy-Rite, officers arrived to find the front door had been pried open as well as the security bars. The two males were seen on video in hooded jackets entering the pharmacy and placing several controlled substance items in a trash bag. The males left the store a short while later.

“The burglars’ description and method of operation closely matches other recent burglaries in Robertsdale, Wetumpka and Escambia County, Fla.,” Brooks said.

Brooks said anyone with information relating to the burglary, or any of the other pharmacy burglaries, are asked to contact the APD at 251-368-9141 or any law enforcement agency in your area.
