3 men sought in Fern Rock prescription drug heist

FERN ROCK (WPVI) -- Detectives are searching for suspects, in what appears to be a well-planned heist of prescription drugs in Philadelphia's Fern Rock section.

Three men arrived in a Jeep Cherokee at the Broad and Grange Pharmacy on the 5700 block of North Broad Street early Monday morning.

Two of them used crowbars and power saws to break through the back doors, and cut the alarm system.

Once inside they went for specific medications, while an accomplice served as a lookout outside.

Sparks were flying as the men attempted to saw their way into a safe.

But at one point police believe they were alerted by their lookout to stop and leave.

They got into the waiting vehicle, and were last seen driving away on Grange Avenue with bottles of prescriptions.

Anyone with information should contact Philadelphia Police.
