Suspects may be responsible for 20 or more narcotics burglaries across valley
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Police are seeking help finding suspects in a string of pharmacy burglaries that began earlier this year.
Beginning in May, several suspects have been committing burglaries at pharmacies across the valley. There are more than 20 incidents the group is believed to be responsible for, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The suspects are known to arrive at the businesses in the early morning hours, and entry is made by either breaking glass doors or by prying them open.
Surveillance photos show the suspects emptying large quantities of controlled prescription drugs into trash cans, and they immediately flee the scene in a waiting vehicle. The types of drugs are Schedule II narcotics such as, but not limited to, Oxycodone, Promethazine with Codeine and Xanax.
There are normally two to three suspects involved in each event. All of the suspects have been wearing dark clothing, gloves, and masks or hoodies pulled over their heads. As of this release, none of the suspects have been identified.
Anyone with any information about these incidents, or with any information about the identities or whereabouts of any involved suspects, is urged to contact the LVMPD Enterprise Area Command Patrol Investigations Section at 702-828-4809. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555, or on the internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
