Police have released surveillance images of two suspects who forced entry into a Walgreens in Cary, causing thousands of dollars in damage and stealing items from the store.
The Cary Police Department received a call for a burglar alarm activation around 3:20 a.m. Wednesday at Walgreens, 500 Northwest Highway in Cary.
Cary Deputy Police Chief Scott Naydenoff said the security company monitoring the alarm and security system saw two men break the glass on the front door of the business.
The two suspects entered the business and left a short time later with unknown items, the security company told 911 dispatchers.
Officers arrived on the scene within four minutes of dispatch and found damage to a window on one side of the building, Naydenoff said.
The damage was consistent with an attempted entry point. Officers also found glass broken on the front door of the business.
Security camera footage showed the two suspects arriving in a black or dark-colored vehicle.
They used a hammer to break the glass and gain entry to the store.
Both men caused damage inside the store and stole various items, which are valued at $2,000.
The damage to the business caused by the forced entry is estimated to be approximately $5,000, Naydenoff said.
The Cary Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the two suspects captured on the business surveillance system.
