On Jan. 9, a carrier dropping off early morning newspapers saw broken glass in front of Owl Drugs. Upon inspection, West Milton Police officers found someone had broken a glass side panel next to the outside door, then broke another glass door between the foyer and the store at 1165 S. Miami Street. It appeared the actual pharmacy area was not entered.
At this point, it appears the only thing stolen was about 20 cartons of cigarettes. Owl Drugs had a similar break-in attempt on Nov. 13, 2011, but nothing was taken.
There are no suspects at this time. Police Chief Garry Kimpel asks anyone who saw something suspicious to contact the police at 698-2677 or the Miami County 911 Communications Center.
