Dispatch Staff Report

 

 

Columbus police are seeking two suspects from a pair of Friday morning drug store burglaries.

 

Robert's Apothecary on Fifth Street was burglarized at approximately 4:30 a.m., according to a police department press release. Less than an hour later, Southern Drugs on Main Street was burglarized by suspects matching the same description.

 

It appears the suspects gained entrance to both businesses by throwing a brick through a glass window at each location. They took "specific drugs" and left each store within two minutes, the press release says.

 

 

One suspect was wearing a black sweatshirt with the letter "M" on it and words that "might be Mississippi," the release says. That same suspect also wore large black flip-flops and leather work gloves. One suspect is tall and thin, and both wore masks and gloves, Police Chief Fred Shelton said.

 

CPD provided surveillance video from the burglaries.

 

Anyone with information on the incidents should call Golden Triangle Crimestoppers at 800-530-7151.
