Battlefield Discount Drugs on Indiana Avenue was the site of a break-in and robbery around 9:16 p.m. Tuesday.
According to Vicksburg police, the suspects are two males. Responding officers found that someone pried the front door open to made entry. Surveillance footage shows the two subjects took an unknown quantity of codeine syrup, and exited one minute later. The duo left the scene in a grey SUV or van.
According to owner John Storey, a Vicksburg police officer’s daughter happened to observe the robbery from the gas station up the hill. She went to a safe location to call her father, who immediately dispatched officers to the scene and then called Storey to alert him as well.
“That’s a community,” Storey said. “I cannot say enough good things about this community and our Vicksburg Police Department.”
Police in Flowood, Mississippi, also reported a pharmacy break-in last night. The two male suspects left in a grey Dodge Caravan with Arizona tags believed to be a rental vehicle.
Police are working under the assumption that the two incidents are related.
