I’d be looking for a recently fired nurse who was stealing pain meds from patients that might have shaved his horrible curls and grown a faux beard. Same build, same drug habit. Just a thought.

You know, if you could buy Vicodin over the counter, the addicts driving these people to steal would be able to buy their drugs, instead of participating in criminal activity.Let’s face it, the fact that drugs are illegal isn’t stopping anyone from taking them.

bouldermeister notices the pattern

On wonders if the perp is a Libertarian. Evidently he wanted to trade his Gun for Drugs. But the Rite Aid employee did the Rite thing. Gave the drugs for free without barter for the value of the Gun.
