Help Catch Some Burglars

The Sacramento Police Department is looking to identify two burglars who broke into a pharmacy and stole schedule II narcotics such as oxycotin, methadone, and amphetamines.

On September 16, 2009, at 4:01 a.m., two burglars broke into a pharmacy located in the 400 block of Howe Avenue.  The suspects used an axe to smash the front door window to gain entry and then broke out the pharmacy window before filling a backpack full of narcotics. 

Suspect #1 is described as a male, White, red beard, mustache, dark sunglasses, black hooded jacket with two white stripes on the arms, white baseball cap, blue jeans, red gloves and armed with an axe.  Suspect #2 is a white unknown gender, wearing a hooded gray sweatshirt, dark sunglasses, tan pants, brown gloves and armed with a crow bar.
