TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

On Tuesday, surveillance video was released in an early morning burglary at a pharmacy in Tyler. The burglary happened at Good’s Medicine Chest on Grande Avenue in Tyler around 2 a.m. on Tuesday. Police said the four suspects in this burglary could be involved in several other pharmacy burglaries across East Texas that happened last month.

Watching the surveillance video, you can see the burglars walk up to the drive-through window and look inside. The first time, something scares them away and they run behind the building. Then they walk forward again, but something spooks them and they run away again. They return moments later. Police say those are the two lookouts. They come back to the window, possibly to watch their counterparts who are now inside.

The second pair entered from a side window that is out of the frame of the surveillance video. Inside, you can see the thieves rummaging around, police said, stealing pain killers and similar syrups. All four suspects are covered from head to toe and wear gloves, so police said they don’t have any descriptions.

Officials said these four burglars are suspected of burglarizing two other East Texas pharmacies last month - one in Tyler and the in Chandler - during the early morning hours of May 25. In one incident, an alarm scared them away, but in the other incident similar medications were also stolen.

“It’s a little bit of a violation to have somebody come in to your place of business like that,” Mark Sullivan, the Director of Pharmaceutical Operations for Good's Medicine Chest, said.

Outside you can see the window the thieves broke in through now covered by wood.

“We just ask that anybody who views the video tonight if they see anything they recognize or anybody they recognize, we would ask them to contact the police and give them that information as soon as possible so we can help stop these burglaries,” Sullivan said.

Police said in all three cases, burglar alarms did go off and that is how they were notified of the incidents.

Good’s Medicine Chest is still open and will continue normal business. Officials are asking if you know anything about these burglaries to call Tyler Police.
