VINE GROVE, KY (WAVE) - A man smashed through the glass of a pharmacy, then stole drugs from inside, according to Vine Grove police.

Investigators said they were called to Apothecare Pharmacy, located on Crutcher Street, on July 10 on a report of a burglary.

When officers arrived they said the front window of the store was damaged. Security footage showed a man hitting the glass with an object that looked like a hammer for several minutes. He then entered the building, removed prescription medications from a shelf and fled.

At the same time the man was breaking into the pharmacy officers said they found a large amount of debris and road cones in three different locations on Joe Prather Highway/KY 313.

Police said they believe the cones and debris were set up as a distraction in connection to the burglary.

No arrests have been made in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Vine Grove Police Department at (270) 877-2252 or the Radcliff Police Department anonymous tip line at (270) 351-TIPS (8477.)
