Police search for pharmacy burglars

They found the evidence, but the criminals are still on the run.

Richmond Police chased two men believed to be behind a break-in early Tuesday morning at the Bluegrass Family Pharmacy on Lexington Road.

The case went into Clark County, but the men got away.

Police say the men broke in through a glass door to get into the pharmacy.

The pharmacy's owner says he and his employees have a lot of cleaning up to do.

Danny Biliter says the burglars went through the shelves looking for narcotics.

The pharmacy's alarm system was activated, but even before that, someone at a nearby convenience store saw suspicious activity and called police.

"We had a local vendor here that actually saw them before they actually entered the building... knowing something suspicious was going on, and that's when they called 911," Biliter said.

Richmond Police spotted the suspects and chased after them into Clark County.

There, police say the men got out of the car and ran away.

Police recovered most of the stolen items, and they're now working to identify the owner of the car.

Biliter says the burglars stole nearly $50,000 worth of narcotics.

Police say surveillance video shows the men in masks.

They were driving a red two-door Pontiac Grand Prix.
