The Red Bay Police Department is seeking information on an early morning break-in Tuesday at Redmont Pharmacy on Golden Road.

At approximately 3:45 a.m. police responded rapidly to an alarm call at the pharmacy. According to security camera footage inside the pharmacy, two suspects broke into the building by entering a window on the north side of the building. They took prescription drugs off the shelves and escaped. Jackson said given the department’s short response time, the suspects entered and left the building extremely quickly.

“They appeared to know where they were heading to get certain bottles,” Police Chief Janna Jackson. “There is more video we are working to get released, and we do want to thank local businesses for offering access to their video footage as well, working together to apprehend the thieves.”

Surveillance footage shows both suspects were covered head-to-toe, with one in all black and the other wearing a camouflage-type hoodie.

Anyone with information that could help lead to identifying the suspects is urged to contact the police department at 256-356-4455.

Police are also investigating a vehicle break-in that occurred Monday on the northeast side of the city. Jackson said money was taken out of the vehicle. It is not known at this time whether that vehicle break-in and the pharmacy burglary are related, but the department is investigating. Following last month’s reported vehicle burglaries, Jackson again urged residents to keep their vehicles locked when they are parked and to not leave valuables inside.
