Morinville RCMP responded to a break, enter and theft at the Gibbons Guardian Pharmacy at approximately 4:32 a.m. Dec. 6.
Police say suspects had used a stolen grey-coloured extended cab GMC Sierra pickup to smash through the front window of the Gibbons Guardian Pharmacy. Once inside, RCMP say masked suspects stole a quantity of prescription and non-prescription drugs. A number of suspects were involved.
One suspect had what appeared to be a long-barrelled firearm, and another suspect had an axe.
After leaving Guardian, the suspects drove across the street and attempted to gain entry into the Gibbons Remedy’s RX pharmacy by ramming into that business as well.
Police say they were unable to gain entry there.
The stolen vehicle was later recovered in the Smoky Lake RCMP detachment area.
