Dickson County detectives say the smash-and-grab theft of dozens of bottles of prescription medications from a Charlotte pharmacy could be the work of professional thieves who have struck elsewhere. Dickson County Sheriff’s Office Det. Troy Martin said investigators have turned up a similar burglary at a pharmacy in Southaven, Mississippi, and are checking to see if the two and possibly others are connected. Surveillance video at the Hometown Pharmacy on Highway 48 in Charlotte shows two suspects smashing the glass front door with a sledgehammer around 5:18 Saturday morning. In under two minutes, the suspects raked several dozen bottles of medications off of shelves into plastic storage bins they brought with them. Martin says in the Southaven burglary, the suspects used a tire iron to smash the door and also brought storage containers with them. In the Charlotte burglary, the thieves made off with an unreleased number of bottles of pills, including painkillers such as Lortab. The surveillance video shows two suspects wearing hooded pullovers, gloves and with their faces covered. It also shows a dark-colored, newer model Nissan Quest or similar minivan outside the pharmacy at the time of the burglary. Anyone with information on the burglary and theft is asked to contact Martin at 740-4884 or the Criminal Investigations Division at 789-9303.
