Suspect steals over $40,000 in prescription drugs from delivery truck
Found: A truck stolen from a Walgreens parking lot last week.
Not found: More than $40,000 in prescription drugs that had been inside the truck.
Sarasota police released a video of two men in the area of the Walgreens at 3535 N. Tamiami Trail before the theft around 12:25 p.m. June 17. The two men are just seen walking around, not actually stealing the truck.
Cops say the 2001 Chevrolet box truck driver was making a dropoff inside the Walgreens making a delivery when the truck was stolen. The truck was found several blocks away, cops said, sans drugs.
