Police find thousands of dollars of stolen medicine


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. They said most of the pain pills were picked out of the loot, but they still recovered thousands of dollars worth of medication.

Police are continuing to track down those behind the burglaries.
