WRONGING THE RITE: Mom & Pop Pharmacy Burglarized...Again

The Save-Rite Pharmacy as it
appeared after an identical burglary
in January.
This story may sound familiar to CWB regulars.

Burglars smashed the front door glass of Save-Rite Pharmacy at Broadway and Cornelia early on Christmas Day and stole the store's cash register.

Chunks of the register were found about a half-block away on the sidewalk in front of 627 Cornelia and the store appeared to have been ransacked according to one passer-by who reported the break-in to police.

Just under a year ago, on January 17, the exact same thing happened. Someone broke through the pharmacy's front door, stole the cash register, and dumped parts in the 600 block of Cornelia.

The latest incident is recorded as a forcible entry burglary in CPD case HX554523.
