It’s been over a week since the CVS pharmacy in the Ironton Hills Shopping Center was broken into, and police still have no leads.

Capt. Chris Bowman, a detective with the Ironton Police Department, said an all-points bulletin has been issued and the department hopes that will help lead to the arrest of the assailant or assailants involved in the crime.

On Feb. 16, the store’s security alarm was disabled and a large amount of drugs, including Schedule II-V pain medications. Some of the drugs the thieves took included OxyContin, Valium, Xanax, Lortab and Lorabid, were taken.

The theft remains under investigation and the police are looking for information regarding the crime. Bowman said anyone with information should contact the police department.

OxyContin is typically crushed and snorted, or crushed and injected. Bowman said OxyContin is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the area and is abused by people of all ages.
