Pharmacy's alarm fails to stop burglar

October 12, 1994

"Alarms are no deterrent; if they want to get in they do," said an employee of a Woodbine pharmacy after the eighth burglary of the store in five years got the intruder narcotics and cigarettes valued at more than $5,675.

The spokesman at King Pharmacy, in the 7600 block of Woodbine Road, who asked not to be identified, said the burglar broke into the store Saturday night or Sunday morning by prying open the rear steel door and disabling the alarm.

The spokesman said the intruder forced open a narcotics cabinet, stole drugs and carried off about 150 cartons of cigarettes. Several watches and other items were also taken.
