Burglars continue to target Professional Pharmacy, 931 Main Street, Pennsburg, for narcotics and cash as authorities said they are investigating yet another break-in during the early morning hours of Aug. 24.
According to Upper Perk Police Det. Matthew Boaman, the latest break-in occurred at approximately 3:55 a.m. when two white males forced open the rear door. Police said the burglars used a pry bar to gain entry.
On surveillance footage, police said they saw the two men taking drugs and money from inside the store. The men, who wore masks and dark covered clothing, were in and out in less than five minutes.
The burglary was discovered by an employee reporting to work at about 7:30 a.m.
Boaman said the suspects appear to be the same individuals who burglarized the store previously, calling them “skillfull” at what they do.
The break-in is the third such incident at the store in six months. On June 4, pharmacist and owner David Stone came into work at approximately 4 a.m. and discovered burglars made entry by forcing open a rear door and took narcotics and cash before fleeing the scene.
On Feb. 20, burglars also broke in through a rear door and took drugs and money from the store’s interior.
Police are not releasing the types or amounts of narcotics stolen by the burglars or the amount of cash taken in any of the crimes.
The store is equipped with an alarm system, but authorities said they could not comment on why police were not being called to the pharmacy at the time of the crime.
Video surveillance from the scene and forensic evidence are being evaluated by police. Upper Perk Police said, as an investigation is ongoing, no further information is being released.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at (215)679-8203.
