Thousands of dollars worth of prescription meds were found inside an abandoned home in the Shoals. Investigators said they are linked to a string of recent pharmacy burglaries in the area. Police said no one is in custody at this time, but that it is still a big break in the case.

Investigators with the Tuscumbia Police Department made a video recording of six garbage bags filled with prescription medication. They said Sheffield Police located the medicine inside an abandoned home as part of a joint investigation. Police said the drugs are linked to burglaries at the Family Pharmacy and Fred's in Tuscumbia.
