(CNS) -Beverly Hills Police today arrested two burglary suspects accused of forcing their way into two pharmacies in Beverly Hills early this morning.
“At this time, it is believed that these suspects are responsible for both burglaries,” said Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino. “In both cases, it appears that the suspects were targeting scheduled pharmaceuticals.”
About 4 a.m., an officer on routine patrol interrupted a pharmacy burglary in the 400 block of North Roxbury Drive and saw two suspects fleeing on foot into a residential area to the south, Hoshino said.
A containment area was set up and a search, using police dogs, located one suspect hiding in a parking structure on Roxbury Drive, south of Wilshire Boulevard, he said. The suspect immediately surrendered to police, the lieutenant said.
About 7 a.m., the second suspect was found hiding at a construction site in the 100 block of South McCarthy Drive, and detectives learned of a second pharmacy burglary in the 9700 block of Wilshire Boulevard, Hoshino said.
The two pharmacies were Pharmacy 90210 on Wilshire Blvd. and the Mickey Fine Pharmacy on North Roxbury Dr. Pharmaceuticals were recovered at the scene.
The suspects were later identified as Terrel Michael Board, 22, of Victorville and 19-year-old Long Beach resident Jeffrey Phillips, Hoshino said.
