Man steals Rx drugs from meds trailer parked at pharmacy

GEISMAR, LA (WAFB) - Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a man who stole prescription drugs from a medicine trailer parked in front of a pharmacy.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported the theft happened at the Walgreen's in Geismar on Dec. 6.

Deputies said the man nabbed the medication while the driver was inside the store making a delivery. The suspect backed his truck up to the trailer and grabbed the drugs.

Surveillance video at the store showed the suspect drive off.

Investigators said a witness described the truck as a newer model tan or beige four-door GMC Sierra short bed. The person added the pickup has fender flares, factory rims and tinted windows.

The witness wasn't able to get the license plate number, but it is known it was a Louisiana 200th anniversary plate with the pelican on the left side.

The truck was last seen speeding down LA 73 and then turning on to Cornerview Road heading toward Gonzales.

Sheriff Jeff Wiley is urging anyone with information to call APSO at 621-4636 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
