1/9/11 - Persistent burglar targets pharmacy

— CUMBERLAND — Police are seeking information about two attempted burglaries Friday night at Brad’s Pharmacy on Oldtown Road.

Cumberland Police were first called at 10:47 p.m. to a burglary in progress at the business, after citizens reported seeing a man trying to pry open the rear door, according to a press release issued Saturday. The suspect did not gain entry and fled on foot before police arrived, police said.

About an hour later, police again responded to the pharmacy after a burglar alarm sounded. Evidence at the scene indicated that the same suspect had gained entry, but fled on a bicycle after the alarm sounded, police said. Nothing was taken.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to contact the Cumberland Police Department at 301-777-1600, or Crimesolvers at 301-722-4300.
