Police seek two men in pharmacy burglary

Phil­adelphia po­lice are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sist­ance in identi­fy­ing two men in con­nec­tion with a phar­macy burg­lary in Tor­res­dale.

On May 5 at 10:30 p.m., two white men were cap­tured on sur­veil­lance video at­tempt­ing to gain ac­cess to the Delaire Phar­macy at 9456 State Road by for­cing open the rear door. 

When the pair opened the rear door, they en­countered an in­teri­or gate. After an un­suc­cess­ful at­tempt to gain ac­cess, the men drove to the front of the phar­macy and pried open the front door. 

After suc­cess­fully gain­ing ac­cess to the phar­macy, one of the burg­lars dis­armed the alarm and took nu­mer­ous pills while the second sus­pect was in­side the vehicle. A short time later, the second man ex­ited the vehicle, opened the front door to the phar­macy and aler­ted the first man that the po­lice were en route, in­form­a­tion he re­ceived via a po­lice scan­ner in­side the vehicle. Both then fled the phar­macy north on State Road.

The first man was stocky and wore a black base­ball hat, dark hooded sweat­shirt and black shorts. The second man wore a black hooded sweat­shirt and dark pants. They drove a red 2008 SRT8 Jeep Grand Cher­o­kee with fact­ory spoke wheels.
