Burglars heavily damaged the building longtime Independence Avenue business Spalitto’s Pharmace early Thursday morning when they drove a stolen mini-van through a side door and stole an undetermined amount of controlled substances.

 

The incident, which was caught on video tape, shows a white mini-van that had backed into the building through a side door. Pharmace owner Pete Spalitto remained optimistic. “We’re really happy nobody was hurt” said Spalitto who was notified of the crime via an internal alarm system. “Everything here can be replaced and we’ll do our best to take care of our customers who rely on us”.

 

Spalitto indicated that the computerized server that dispenses prescriptions was damaged during the robbery and that delays in filling prescriptions could occur. Contractors were at the pharmacy on Thursday repairing the damage. Police were unclear on exactly how much was stolen from the business. Suspects are described as two black males dressed in hoodie type sweatshirts.
