Arrest made after drugs stolen from Three Bears pharmacy

Posted: September 1, 2012 - 9:49am

A man broke into the Three Bears’ pharmacy in Kenai on Wednesday night, stole large quantities of drugs and fled from the scene, an official from the Kenai Police Department said.

After an investigation, Soldotna Police Department officers arrested Jeffery Earl, Jr., of Nikiski, while he was at a Soldotna business as a suspect in connection with the burglary.

“He had controlled substances in his possession at the time of his arrest,” Kenai Police Department Lt. David Ross said. “The Soldotna Police Department charged him with additional charges of misconduct involving a controlled substance.”

Investigation is ongoing and involves both police departments the Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit and Alaska State Troopers, Ross said.

The event, which was discovered Thursday morning, occurred while the store was open but the pharmacy was closed, Ross said. The burglary was captured on video. Ross said he could not comment on what drugs were stolen or the value of them.

Yet another loser strikes

Good fry him! Those of us normal people, who are trustable (which i really believe there are) end up again paying the price. Sudefed, and and array of other things are tracked by the police, are highly monitored. They check sign in logs to look for patterns of purchases, and God forbid you NEED anything behind the counter you immediately are put off. Who is it hurting???? You and I, the ones reading this going "Yes i agree!" Enough is enough.... The law needs to be HARSHER than it is for these unfavorables. I for one, as an upstanding citizen of this state am sick of it! Make him watch someone like a CHILD die as a result of an overdose....Due to his reckless behavior. I have a girlfriend who lost her 15 year old son, due to Oxycontin. He had asthma, never took it before OF COURSE...first he is gone. It all but destroyed her. Its not all about you making a fast buck....look at the entire picture will end up selling it and someone, somewhere may die. That, is the tragic truth that they just do not get. Something must change or this will continue to occur. I am so sick of pharmacys becoming the pill police as a result of has forced their hands. If they dont abide, they too can be subject to trouble. This is a real vicious cycle...and honestly, I wish someone with some real clout would get involved.

Get off your soap box beoch!
Sounds like you are an avocate for looser drug restrictions on one hand but harsher on the other. Make up your mind, which side are you really on?

What does your rambling speech even have to do with this article and how are we to know that you are a good citizen or are you just some bored welfare betty looking for a thrill
