Police say the two men broke into the Glyn View Plaza Rite Aid early Sunday morning.

Surveillance video from a neighboring business shows two men carrying out items from the pharmacy.

They say the men broke in through the roof and cut the power supply to the building in order to turn off the alarm system.

“I'm not sure of the exact damage but did several dollars worth of damage to the alarm system and other electrical equipment,” said detective Adam Dixon.

They also got away with more than just cash.

“They had actually gotten out of the store with not only the money safe, but the safe in the pharmacy that holds scheduled narcotics," said Dixon.

The crime has left some a little nervous.

“It’s pretty disturbing, that people are robbing places; so who's going to be next. I just live a few miles up the road,” said Rite Aid shopper, Gary Dodson.

No arrests have been made.
