Palestine PD investigates burglary of Bratton's Pharmacy

PALESTINE, May 16, 2014-- On May 15th, 2014, at approximately 3:33 a.m., Palestine Police Officers responded to an alarm at Bratton’s Pharmacy located at 2350 W. Oak, Suite A, adjoining Kim’s Convenience Store.

Upon arrival, Officers found that an unknown offender had broken out a drive-thru window at the Pharmacy. The offender, apparently wearing a clown mask, entered the business in search of prescription medications.

Witnesses to the event  observed a person, approximately 5’10 tall or taller, walk to the front doors and pull on them and then walk to the west side of the building, noted as being the side of the building with the drive –thru window.  The witnesses heard the alarm sound, and shortly thereafter observed police arriving on scene. The suspect is believed to have left the scene on foot, prior to officers’ arrival. Officers did conduct a search of the area, but were unable to locate a suspect in connection with the offense.

This offense is still being investigated and the property loss has not been finally determined, regarding any stolen medications.

The Police Department does have some leads to follow up on in this case; however, any assistance that the public can give would be appreciated.
