Christmas burglar caught on camera at pharmacy

Posted: Updated:

A local pharmacist is asking for the public's help finding a real-life Grinch who smashed his way into a business to grab some expensive drugs early Tuesday.

What the burglar didn't know was that his night of crime was all caught on camera, as surveillance video captured him taking a number of drugs with a high street value, such as Oxycodone and Percoset.

The smash-and-grab happened around 3:45 a.m., but pharmacist John Hagan said he didn't get the call from police until 8 a.m. When Hagan arrived, he found shattered glass all over the floor and lots of very strong drugs missing.

However, those security cameras were still rolling.

Hagan said he just wants the thief taken off the streets and hopes you can help.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect from surveillance video is asked to call Springfield police.
