FOR THE WEEK JANUARY 11TH, 2009

Around one o’clock in the morning they tried to pry open the front door of Lindsay Pharmacy at 2131 North Ridge Road. The burglars set off the audible alarm and ran off before the police arrived. At around 7:30 that evening, officers responded to an alarm at Preston Socora Pharmacy at 8200 West Central Avenue. They found a side window that was broken out and it appeared that someone had reached into the business and stole a bottle of vitamins.
