Two suspects are wanted after burglarizing the CVS Pharmacy in the 1400 blk S. Baldwin Avenue, Arcadia, on May 25, 2016, at about 9:30 PM. As one suspect distracted a pharmacist with a “consultation,” the second suspect jumped the pharmacy counter and moved directly to a supply of bottled Promethazine w/Codeine cough syrup. He grabbed a number of bottles and placed them in a brown bag. Both suspects then ran out of the store through an emergency exit. No suspect vehicle was seen. We are seeking public assistance in identifying the two suspects.
Both suspects are described as males, White or Hispanic, 20-30 yrs, 5’07’/130 and 6’0”/160.
