MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Harbor Town Pharmacy will be closed Thursday due to being burglarized, the company said.
According to Memphis Police, they responded to a burglary a little after 5:30 a.m. Once on the scene, officers found that the back glass door was smashed with a crowbar.
A pharmacist with the business said between $100-$150 was taken from the register. Video footage also showed a single suspect taking medication off the shelves.
“You can see him in our cameras take a bag away from underneath his jacket that he had on. And he was fully covered his face. He had gloves on,” said Pharmacy Technician Erica Gause.
What the suspect stole was reportedly for prostate, which is Tamsulosin. The other is Metformin, which is like a diabetes drug that can sometimes be used for weight loss.
Thursday morning, the pharmacy took to Facebook to announce that it would be closed. They taped a note on the door that said the following:
“Due to a burglary early this morning, the pharmacy will be closed today, Thursday, October 19.”
