Video Shows Man Using Sledgehammer To Smash Pharmacy Door

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to contact Manchester police

Manchester Township Police are searching for a man captured on video surveillance burglarizing The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in Whiting early Wednesday morning. 

Patrolman Jesse Hoydis and Patrolman Joseph Reilly responded to the Lacey Road store after an internal motion alarm activated at 2:23 a.m. The officers were on scene moments later and found forced entry into the store had been made through a shattered front glass doo, police said.

They reviewed video surveillance footage, which shows a white male, age unknown, using a sledgehammer to break the door. The man then targeted prescription medications and left the store through the same door, before he drove away in a four-door sedan, police said.

Anyone who recognizes the man or vehicle used in the burglary is asked to contact Detective Chris Hemhauser at 732-657-2009, ext. 4207. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips also can be submitted through the Tip Line located at www.manchesterpolicenj.com.

Suz/grace......did you ever think that...that was all the information that was given out at the time or that the auditors weren't finished. Give " Patch " a break, it's free, If you wanted more go buy a paper....oops, there aren't any left that cover our area.

Codone is not so easy to get anymore, so one needs to smash their way into a drugstore if they feel desperate.
