Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Medicine Shoppe burglars

From Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers

LUFKIN. TX (Release) - Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers wants your help identifying the two criminals who burglarized The Medicine Shoppe pharmacy on West Frank Avenue in Lufkin.

Security camera video from the pharmacy shows the burglars arriving just after 3:00 a.m. on October 30.  They were driving a dark colored four-door car, possibly a late model Chevrolet Impala, and they used two pry bars to force open the rear door to the building.

They brought with them a laundry-type basket and once inside they made their way behind the service counter and filled the basket with prescription medications. Even though police officers arrived a few minutes after the burglar alarm activated, the criminals were able to enter the building, steal narcotics, and escape.

Portions of the security videos are posted online at and Both burglars covered their heads and faces but someone reading this article or watching the video may recognize them or their vehicle, or has heard them brag about the crime. If that's you, Crime Stoppers might put cash in your pocket for anonymously providing information that helps investigators put them in jail.
