FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – Burglars have targeted a locally-owned drug store in Frankfort and police say they were able to get away with more than $22,000 worth of prescription pills.

This was the third time in a year thieves have broken into Capital Pharmacy, but this time owner Aaron McIntosh said they were able to get away with more than ever before.

McIntosh said he was frustrated to find thieves once again broke into his business.

"They usually know where to go," said McIntosh. "They've known where to go the past few times."

With large tubs in hand, the suspects went straight to a specific shelf targeting certain painkillers.

"Our assumption of course on this is these drugs are going to be resold for street drugs and in which case the value of the stolen property is going to increase significantly," said Major Fred Deaton with Frankfort Police.

Frankfort Police say it took the two men less than two minutes to get away with more than $22,000 worth of pills.

"It appears they were driving a light colored Ford 150 pickup truck and both suspects appear to be white males, medium height, medium build," said Deaton.

The independent drug store has been around for 26 years. McIntosh said this last year has been the worst for break-ins. He's already stepped up security measures, but is planning to do so once again.

"We got better glass in the door, but I'm still going to put up the security gates that will hopefully keep them out," said McIntosh.

If you have any information that could help police, you are asked to call Frankfort Crime Stoppers at 502-875-8648, you may be eligible for up to $1000 reward, and Capital Pharmacy says they will match the reward.
