$15K in drugs stolen from store in Cumming

May 26, 2014

CUMMING, Ga. — Someone broke into a drug store and stole $15,000 in prescriptions drugs, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 10 p.m. May 17, deputies were dispatched to Sawnee Drug Company, 2515 Business Drive, after their silent alarm was activated.

When deputies arrived, they saw the interior glass door open. The outside door’s deadbolt was in the locked position, which kept it from closing.

The store owner later arrived and said the cash register was untouched, but the burglar emptied three shelves of prescription medication.

He said about $15,000 in Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Alprazolam, Diazepam and Adderall were missing.

The recorded video surveillance was not working at the time, so no footage of the burglary was captured.
