[LASD] – On Monday September 3, 2012, between the hours of 1:14am and 1:16am, a male suspect rode a motorcycle into the parking lot of a pharmacy located on the 27800 block of Smyth Drive in Santa Clarita. The male suspect entered the pharmacy by carefully removing the window pane of the front door with a pry tool. The suspect (who was wearing gloves) then entered the pharmacy where he stole several bottles of prescription narcotics and $25 in U.S. currency. Based on the way the male suspect entered the business, it is believed he may have experience installing or removing doors and windows.
The suspect is described as a male (unknown race) who is approximately 5’08 to 5’09, and weighs between 200 and 230 pounds. The male suspect was wearing a gray long sleeved hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black shoes, black gloves, and possibly wearing prescription glasses. The suspect was in possession of a black backpack.
The suspect fled the area on a motorcycle in an unknown direction.
The investigation into this burglary is on-going. Anyone who has any further information to assist in this investigation is urged to contact Det. Darland of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 661-799-5135 or at LWDarlan@lasd.org
