HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WBRC) - Surveillance cameras captured two men smashing a brick through Homewood Pharmacy’s door before stealing prescription medication.

It happened around 2:30 Thursday morning.

You can see two men with their faces covered quickly picking medication off the shelves and stashing them in their bags before jetting out the shattered front door.

The owner says they’re beefing up security now so it doesn’t happen again.

“It’s costing us more money to fix the door than the medications they stole,” said owner Ryan Hamilton. “It’s a nuisance because they did steal some narcotics so we have to report that to the DEA, we have to go to the state board, they’re going to have to come in and do an investigation. So it’s a lot of time and effort on our part for just something stupid.”
