SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Dec. 21, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Police are searching for suspects after three Salt Lake City pharmacies were robbed overnight.

Salt Lake Police have not confirmed the same suspects committed each crime, but the three are similar in nature.

At 12:12 a.m., a burglar alarm was activated at Intermountain Healthcare’s Memorial Clinic at 2000 S. 900 East, according to a news release from the Salt Lake City Police Department. 

“A security officer arrived on scene and found signs of forced entry. A pharmacist later confirmed that several different medications were stolen. There is no suspect information at this time.

The second burglary took place at 12:47 a.m. at the Rite Aid at 150 N. 900 West, where the suspects forced entry into the store and again took several different prescription medications. The suspects fled, and were described as wearing ski masks and gloves.

The third burglary took place at 2:03 a.m. at a second Rite Aid at 220 S. 700 East. 

Suspects again forced entry into the business and stole several prescription medications. The suspects were not located, and are described as wearing all black clothing and masks.
