Crime Stoppers: Collegedale pharmacy robbery

Posted: Updated:

COLLEGEDALE, HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) --Crime Stoppers is looking for the man who broke into a pharmacy before dawn and stole thousands of prescription pills. 

It all went down in the wee hours of the morning at a pharmacy in Collegedale.

The pictures are blurry but perhaps you have the right information to put this guy behind bars.

A sign in the window reads "good neighbor pharmacy," but you couldn't blame them if a recent theft left them feeling less than neighborly.

Med Plus is in the heart of Collegedale on Ooltewah-Ringgold Road, just a couple of blocks from city hall.

This thriving business took a considerable loss when it was hit in the early morning hours of July 1st.

It was 4:40 am when the thief busted a lock on the front door. Security cameras captured images.

You can see what appears to be a white man entering the store here. He's wearing a ski mask and gloves, a camouflage hoodie and blue jeans.

Investigators believe this was not his first robbery. 

As he moves directly to the drug safe, quickly cracks it and makes off with a substantial amount of narcotics.

The whole operation took just about two minutes.  the getaway car waiting outside is a large brown or tan colored four door sedan.

Detectives say these crooks may be the same that have recently struck in Whitfield County and Atlanta. Same ski mask, same m.o., same precision in their strike on the pharmacy. 

The lock has been replaced on the front door at Med Plus.

No one was injured or threatened in this crime, but how long before someone unsuspectingly gets in their way?

Let's get these crooks off the street and behind bars.

Your good information could get you up to a $1000, no questions asked. Police won't even know who you are.

Pick up the phone and call Crime Stoppers at 698-3333.  It's time to bring the crime spree for these guys to an end.
