Police suspect same man in string of pharmacy break-ins


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - Johnson City police are investigating a string of break-ins at several different pharmacies-- and investigators believe the same man is behind them all.

The first break-in happened at the end of July at Boones Creek Pharmacy,

Sgt. Mike Adams with the Johnson City Police Department tells News 5 there was also a burglary at the Gray Pharmacy, and another attempted break-in at Blankenship Pharmacy.

Police say the suspect has the same pattern at each place.

"Most of the time he's breaking the glass out of the front doors and then entering through the blasted out front door," explained Sgt. Adams. "Based on clothing, and the size and build, it all matches up with surveillance cameras as being the same person."

If you recognize the suspect, call Johnson City police.
