Police arrest 11 in Atlanta area pharmacy burglaries

By The Associated Press

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Police have arrested nearly a dozen people who police say are believed to have been connected to multiple pharmacy burglaries in the Atlanta area.

DeKalb County police arrested 11 people after a tracking device in a pill bottle led them to a home in northwest Atlanta, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. DeKalb County police spokeswoman Michaela Vincent said the arrests happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

“It is believed that the individuals are connected to a number of pharmacy burglaries in DeKalb County and the metro area,” Vincent said.

Hours earlier, around 2 a.m. Sunday, police arrived at a Publix pharmacy to find the front doors and roll-down pharmacy gate had been forced open, according to a police report. The store manager told officers she'd closed about half an hour earlier.

“The suspects took an undetermined amount of pharmacy narcotics,” an officer wrote in the report.

Police did not immediately release the names of those arrested, and it wasn't immediately clear how many pharmacy burglaries might be connected. Vincent described the investigation as “very active.”
