Pharmacy Thief Comes After Pills, Gets Beans

A pharmacist says some drug store burglar got a surprise when they broke into his business to steal the pain medication Lortab — the pills had been replaced with beans.
Pharmacist Mac Clark works at Fred’s Drug Store in Pascagoula said the store has been broken into several times in the past six months, and each time the burglars got Lortab. He decided he needed a decoy.
He put kidney beans in a large Lortab bottle. Around 6 a.m. Wednesday, the burglars came back. The only thing stolen was the Lortab bottle filled with beans.
Investigators believe the burglar cut him or herself during the break-in because they found a trail of blood leading away from the building.
