Life Point Pharmacy on South Church Street across from the Tigermart Exxon Gas Station was burglarized on Saturday morning. As police were entering the front door that was apparently left ajar by the criminal, they actually met him walking out of the building. As 38-year old Matthew Terrill walked out of the pharmacy he was seen carrying several pill bottles, according to a police report.
The Incident Report stated, “The suspect forced open several locked doors within the pharmacy and had placed a large quantity of the pharmacy's medications into his vehicle.” Police initially responded to the Life Point Pharmacy because of a burglary alarm call.
Detectives responded to the scene and took photographs and seized all stolen property, including the large quantity of pills found in the suspects vehicle.
The case was labeled as a burglary, vandalism and theft. The theft was valued between $1,000 and $10,000 at the time of the report. The charges that were filed against Terrill included "Burglary and Theft." As of Monday evening, Terrill was still behind bars being held under a $9,500 bond.
