CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston police are investigating after a large number of antibiotics and pregnancy medications were stolen during an overnight burglary at a pharmacy on Charlie Hall Blvd. in West Ashley.

Officers were called to Herold's Pharmacy Wednesday around 8 a.m. after an employee arrived at the store and found the front door open, despite the lock still being engaged. Police say pry marks were spotted near the lock of the door, and power to the building was cut off.

The employee told police the pharmacy was closed for the night Tuesday at 8 p.m., and not reopened until she arrived at 7:45 a.m.

According to a report, muddy footprints were found on the sales floor, on the countertop separating the sales floor from the pharmacy, and in the pharmacy area. 

A cabinet in the pharmaceutical area was broken open, and several prescription jars were on the floor, police say. 

An employee told officers that while some pain medication and muscle relaxers were missing, a large amount of antibiotics and pregnancy medication were stolen. 

The report states the store's cash registers, laptops, and safe were not disturbed. 

The burglary occurred two nights after police say a man broke into a CVS on Ashley River Road, stealing numerous prescription medications. That suspect is still at large. 

Detectives have not yet determined if the two burglaries are connected. 

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
