Prescription Drugs Stolen In Pharmacy Break In

Posted 8/17/2017

Hesston police responded to an alarm at Hesston Pharmacy on Main Street a little before 1 a.m. Thursday. 

According to Hesston Police Chief Doug Schroder, “The investigation is very fluid right now.” 

Schroeder said forced entry was found at the pharmacy by responding officers. 

“Subsequent investigations led to traffic stops and one of several suspects was identified,” he said. 

Schroeder said the suspects targeted prescription medications, “the most highly abused ones, like pain killers.” 

On Thursday, Schroeder said, “We currently have one search warrant we’re getting some information from.” 

He said in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation, no further information could be released.  However, he was “confident it will be solved.”
