CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Officers are looking for two men who reportedly stole medication from a Corvallis pharmacy.
Officers with the Corvallis Police Department responded to reports of a robbery at Good Samaritan Pharmacy Friday, shortly after midnight.
While they were en route, security guards searched the building and found out that a door had been left open. However, they didn't find anyone on the property.
Pharmacy employees reported more than 7,000 pills of opioids were stolen.
Security video shows, two heavy-set men taking the pills after forcing open the front door and the locked opioid cabinet. The men in the video were wearing black clothes, gloves, ski masks and carrying small pry bars.
Lt. Duncan said although a burglary like this is a rare occurrence in Corvallis, it's not uncommon.
"It's not unheard of across the nation to see pharmacy's broken into for specifically these types on medications," said Lt. Duncan.
He said this break in may be attributed to the opioid epidemic that's happening across country.
Joe Hutchinson is the Director of Security, Safety and Emergency Management at Samaritan Health Services. He said they're taking notes from this break in.
"We are taking measures to increase and change some of our operational aspects for security," said Hutchinson.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
