Drugs taken from local pharmacy in 'smash and grab' burglary Friday


COLDSPRING -- An early morning "smash and grab" burglary at B&B Brookshire Brothers Pharmacy, located three blocks from the San Jacinto County Sheriff's Department, occurred Friday at 2:05 a.m. According to Pharmacist David Boring a surveillance camera videoed the four suspects, two white and two black, wearing black masks and dressed in black attire. He said all four were short and stocky in statue. Boring said the suspects entered the pharmacy by breaking the glass out of the front door. An alarm went off but the suspects were in and out within three or four minutes. "Three or four different controlled drugs, a lot of blood pressure medicine and about $100 in cash were taken," Boring said. "These were pros, probably out of the Houston area." An attempt to get more information about the incident from the San Jacinto County Sheriff's Department was to no avail.
