Salina — Police say someone stole more than 12,000 pills of various pain medications from a Salina pharmacy.
Lt. Scott Siemsen says the theft occurred at Jim’s Pharmacy during a burglary early Monday. The medicine was valued at more than $16,000.
Siemsen says someone used rocks to break a window at the pharmacy. Surveillance video shows a person wearing a camouflage coat and mask entering the store and stealing the pills and cash. The total loss was estimated at $18,167.
The thief stole Diazepan, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Fentanyl and Hydrocodone.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/ViBqVu ) Siemsen said a break-in at Salina Dental might have been related to the theft. A window was broken at the business but nothing appeared to be missing. Damage was estimated at $200.
