Fenton Police are searching for a suspect that they say broke into the B & C Pharmacy on Silver Lake Road around 1:30 a.m. Nov. 8.
Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said police responded to an alarm and were on scene in less than a minute. However, by then Aro said the suspect had broken into the back door of the pharmacy, took bottles of Adderall and Hydrocodone and exited the building.
Aro said the phone lines to the business had been cut and the back door had been pried open.
Police did receive video footage of the break-in, however, the suspect concealed his identity with his clothing. Aro described the suspect as a male between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches, about 200 pounds, wearing a white hoodie and a mask.
Police are continuing the investigation.
The B & C Pharmacy has been a target of multiple robberies and theft in the last two years.
A 35-year-old Fenton woman told police she applied for a loan online and was scammed out of $195.
Aro said the woman reported a company told her she was approved for a $2,000 loan, but had to obtain a $195 Green Dot Card and share the number to show good faith. She purchased the card and shared the information and then became suspicious after the money was taken off the card, according to the report.
Police called the company, which appeared to be Florida, but the person who answered the phone was uncooperative and hung up on police.
Aro said police are trying to work with different agencies in the investigation of the case.
A 39-year-old Fenton man reported $4,000 worth of tools missing from his home on Nov. 5, according to police.
Aro said the man reported that someone broke into a storage area at his home on North Lemen Street and took several saws, a drill and a generator among other tools sometime between Sept. 30 and Nov. 5.
Police have no suspects.
