ST. GEORGE (ABC4 Utah) – Police are asking for the public’s help to solve a string of Pharmacy burglaries across multiple counties in Utah. 

Siena’s Pharmacy’s front door in St. George is still boarded up after three men came at 2:45 am Wednesday morning and broke the glass.

“There’s a pretty good shot of this guys face right here,” said Pharmacist Steve Kirkland, showing Good4Utah’s Lauren Matthias the surveillance video. 

Siena’s is one of the latest targets in a string of burglaries across the state.

“In one night they robbed a store in Cedar, came down here and robbed a store in Washington, about a week later they robbed two stores in St. George, and a couple weeks after that they robbed us a store in Parowan in the same night, I mean after they robbed me they went straight to Parowan,” said Kirkland. 

Kirkland says with the opioid crisis, he’s not surprised by the multiple break-ins. 

“It’s usually oxycodone they’re after, because you can get a lot of money for it,” said Kirkland. 

“Generally in the middle of the night, around 2 am, and they do what’s called a smash and grab. They break a window or glass on a door to gain entry, and then they steal several narcotics,” said Lona Trombley with St. George Police.   

Police say within two minutes the three men caught on the surveillance video (shown in the video above) got away with numerous drugs. But Police say there could be more than just these three suspects, and they’re working with many agencies on the investigation. 

“We do know that it’s happened in Washington City, Cedar City, and father up north also has incidences. We are actively working with Las Vegas metro, and these other agencies kind of complied evidence we’ve got to see if we can figure out who’s doing this,” said Trombley. 

“We just need to keep working together, all of the agencies, and if anyone has any information to please call in [to the St. George Police],” said Trombley.
