A Morganton pharmacy was robbed on Sunday night.

Morganton Public Safety officers responded to a report of a break-in at around 8:15 a.m. Monday at Cannon’s Pharmacy at 342 E. Parker Road.

The suspects made off with “petty cash” and “a good bit of inventory,” Lt. Steve Massey said.

The officers responded to a call from employees of the pharmacy this morning. Upon arrival, the officers discovered there was more than $10,000 in damage to the establishment, including broken glass at the drive-thru window, disconnected power and interior damage, Massey said.

Officers suspect at least two people were involved in the crime, as they discovered two sets of footprints along the back side of the building, Massey said.

This is a developing story and The News Herald will have more information as it becomes available.
