Police: Man steals pharmacy narcotics after hiding above ceiling

DENVER (AP) ” Denver police say a very patient burglar has stolen narcotics from three pharmacies by walking in during business hours, climbing into the space above the ceiling and hiding there for at least eight hours until the store closes.

All three pharmacies are in grocery stores. Investigators say the man climbed through the ceiling in a restroom in at least two of them.

The burglaries have been caught on surveillance cameras but the suspect is wearing a baseball cap that partly obscures his face.

Police say the man picks and chooses among the prescription drugs for the ones he wants.

The most recent burglary was Thursday. The other two were on July 27th and August 24th.
