Early Friday morning, someone broke into Auburn Pharmacy near 15th and Church Streets . According to the Eudora Police Department, the burglary happened around 3:45 AM.

“Someone broke the window out of the front of the building, entered it and took several medications,” Eudora Police Chief Bill Edwards said. “The people at Auburn Pharmacy believe the person knew just where to go to get a key to get in the drug lockers.”

Edwards said that multiple medications were taken in the theft. He told us that police were investigating and looking at camera footage from nearby businesses to obtain the identity of anyone involved.

“We found evidence that the thief left to the east.,’ Edwards disclosed. “We found containers and other items from the store that were dropped along the way.”

Megan Hedden, Head Pharmacist at Auburn Pharmacy, was happy that it occurred when no one was in the building.

“Something like this makes you question your safety,” Hedden said. “We’re thankful that no one was here when it happened.”

Hedden said that the Pharmacy will be reviewing their security system and strengthening store security policies very quickly. She also added that the Pharmacy is open and there are no issues with being able to fill prescriptions.

“We only had three or four issues with filling prescriptions this morning,” she said. “Our customers have been very kind and understanding.” She said that there were no issues with filling prescriptions by midday Friday.

Hedden declined to state what types of medications were stolen nor the value of drugs taken.

Both the Police Department and the pharmacy asked that anyone with information about the burglary to call the Eudora Police Department through the city main number at 785-542-3121.
