DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -A man who burglarized two Dothan pharmacies early Thursday got away with painkillers and other narcotics. He gained entry to those businesses by throwing concrete blocks through their windows.

“Somebody passing by Jack’s Drugs on Honeysuckle Road witnessed a burglary in progress and called officers,” said Dothan Police Lieutenant Scott Owens. When those officers arrived the burglar had left, and a subsequent manhunt came up empty.

Another burglary was discovered a short time later about two miles away—this one at Westside Pharmacy.

Pain pills and other drugs are missing from both stores and Owens believes the same man committed both crimes.

“We have some good leads and, hopefully, will soon apprehend him,” he said.
