Professional Pharmacy Hit Again for Narcotics, Cash
Written by Kelly Chandler, Staff Writer

        Two male suspects reportedly got away with prescription medication and cash during an early morning burglary at Professional Pharmacy, 931 Main Street, Pennsburg Monday.

        The burglary was discovered at about 4:15 a.m. by the store’s pharmacist and owner, David Stone when he went into work.
        In a phone interview Tuesday, Stone said the suspects tried to disable the store’s security system but were unable to. It was unclear why, if the alarm system was functional, police were not called to the location at the time of the break-in. 
        According to a press release issued by Upper Perk Police, the suspects made entry by forcing their way in through a rear door. Once inside, they were observed on video surveillance footage taking cash and prescription medication from the interior of the pharmacy.
        Police are not releasing the types or amount of narcotics stolen or the amount of cash the burglars got away with.
        According to Stone, the burglary has “similar circumstances” as the Feb. 20 break-in at the pharmacy where suspects broke in through a rear door and took narcotics and cash before fleeing the scene.
        Stone said staff members are cooperating with police in order to identify the suspects.   
        Upper Perk Police said they could not release any more information as the investigation is ongoing. Authorities are currently working on forensic evidence and enhancing video footage from the scene. 
        An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (215)679-8203.
