Red Deer RCMP are investigating an early morning pharmacy break-in.

Police responded to an alarm at the Gaetz Avenue Pharmacy at 3410 50th Ave. around 5:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning. They found the glass front door had been shattered, likely with a broken shovel that was left on the sidewalk. Police said the opening in the door was large enough for a person to crawl through.

The suspect stole about 20 blister packs of pills including hydromorphone and morphine, for a total of between 200 to 400 assorted narcotics.

According to surveillance footage, the suspect left the building by the back door.

The suspect was wearing dark shoes with dark/black pants and a black long-sleeved shirt under a blue short-sleeved top that tied in the back, possibly a hospital gown. The suspect also had on white gloves that were too large, was possibly wearing a black hat and was carrying a black garbage bag.

Anyone with more information is asked to call RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to remain anonymous or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
