Local law enforcement responded to three reports alleging the theft of medications, including a burglary at a prominent Moultrie pharmacy.

Moultrie police responded to an alarm at Arwood Drug Company, 101 N. Main St., at 12:17 a.m. Thursday. Officers found someone had broken into the pharmacy.

Missing were four bottles of hydrocodone and a bottle of potassium, police said. The estimated value was $110.

Damaged ceiling tiles led police to think the burglars broke in through the roof, and the Moultrie Fire Department was called out to provide a ladder to access the roof.

Damage to the building was estimated at $150, police said.

• Tim Kilgore, 600 block 26th Avenue Southeast, told police he was robbed Wednesday night at the Shell gas station, 2725 S. Main St.

Kilgore said two men approached him in the convenience store parking lot about 9 p.m. and demanded money. He said they didn’t appear to be armed, but he was frightened so he gave them the $40 he had on him.

He said the men then went through his medicine bag and took out his prescription medicines, Soma and Xanax. Then they ran away.

The officer noted Kilgore’s eyes were “glossy,” his speech was slurred and he was very unsteady when he was standing up. He also noted that Kilgore called police at 11:43 p.m., almost three hours after the robbery; Kilgore said he was too scared to call when the incident first happened.

• Suzanne Martin, 400 block Horne Street in Norman Park, told Colquitt County sheriff’s deputies she reported her car stolen Monday on Shade Murphy Road.

The vehicle was recovered Tuesday and returned to her by a Brooks County deputy, and Martin said drug paraphernalia was still in the car when he gave it to her. She also said dust that she thought was from methamphetamine was all over the car’s interior.

On Wednesday, Martin remembered her prescription bottle of hydrocodone had been in the vehicle when it was stolen. She told the deputy searched but could not find the medicine in the car.

She said there had been about 45 pills remaining when they were stolen.
