Carlisle police seek IDs of 2 wanted in pharmacy thefts

Posted: Updated:
CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Carlisle police have released surveillance photos of two men suspected of stealing over-the-counter medications at two borough pharmacies, and now say $2,500 worth of drugs was taken from the stores.

Police said Wednesday that the same men are responsible for a third incident at a Rite-Aid pharmacy in Lemoyne, where they attempted to steal $1,700 worth of merchandise Monday afternoon but dropped the goods and fled when they were confronted by employees.

The thefts in Carlisle occurred at CVS pharmacies on East High Street and South West Street.

Police said an employee at the South West Street store had been given a description of the actors in the first theft and saw the suspects in her store. When she went to the door to look for a vehicle, the thieves ran past her and fled.

The suspects were driving an early 2000 model Subaru station wagon that is black with a tan bottom and has a Pennsylvania license plate, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Carlisle police at 717-243-5252.
