Police: Man broke into pharmacy through air vent

Posted: Updated:

Police in Fayetteville are looking for a man who they say broke into a pharmacy by using an air vent.

They say a man walked into the Kroger on South Glynn Street on Sunday at about 9 p.m. The man went into the restroom and crawled up into an air vent. He reportedly then shimmied his way across the ceiling before falling through the ceiling and into the pharmacy.

The suspect swiped two bottles of a controlled substance. He then tried to leave through a security gate, but it was locked. The man crawled back into the air vent and through the ceiling back into the men's room. He left behind the medication he tried to steal.

He walked out the front door and rode away in a black Chevy Tahoe driven by a second suspect.

If you recognize the man seen in the surveillance photos, please contact Fayetteville police at 770-461-4441.
