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.
