Federal officials have arrested the last of several people whom they believe are responsible for a string of burglaries at pharmacies in various towns in Louisiana. Some of the earlier arrests in this case took place in Baton Rouge.
According to police reports, seven people were involved in repeated burglaries, in which they would enter pharmacies and then take both cash and marketable prescription drugs. While reports are describing the police investigation as if it were a burglary, about $3 million in medicines and other prescription drugs were located at the homes of some of the suspects. Given the amount of drugs involved, drug charges are also a possibility.
