Take the cure: Pharmacy thieves stuff over-the-counter drugs down their pants

Police are looking for three thieves who smuggled drugs out of a Greenpoint pharmacy by stuffing them down their pants on Jan. 31.

The trio entered the pharmacy at Manhattan Avenue and Milton Street at approximately 2:50 pm, concealed several packages of over-the-counter medicines in their trousers, and then fled, police said.

Authorities described all three suspects as around 25 years old, standing 5-foot-8, and weighing 150 pounds.

Cops say the suspects were last seen wearing baseball caps and a black jacket, red hooded jacket, and black coat with a fur-lined hood respectively.

Authorities ask anyone with information on the incident to call (800) 577-8477, or submit tips by logging onto www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
