Nashville Police arrest suspect for burglary of area pharmacies

Authorities have apprehended a suspect connected to the burglary of both Doehring’s Pharmacy and Nashville Pharmacy last month.

According to a post on the Nashville Police Department Facebook, both pharmacies were burglarized on June 18 and July 2 when a male suspect threw either a rock or a brick at a window to gain entrance. He then proceeded to take several hundred dollars worth of pseudoephedrine from each pharmacy.

Police had been investigating the crime over the last few weeks and have made an arrest.

“Early this morning, NPD took the suspect into custody,” the post said.

After the warrant was issued, a search in the suspect’s apartment in Nashville and more contraband was recovered. This suspect has been charged with two counts of burglary, unlawful possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

A second related search of the apartment also netted a couple more arrests. Police say both individuals were charged with unlawful possession of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a controlled substance (suspected fentanyl), unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of hypodermic syringes. One resident was additionally charged with unlawful possession of ammunition by a felon.

Names of the suspects as these investigations are ongoing, and all suspects were taken to the Washington County Jail and currently held on felony holds.

The Standard will update this post when more information becomes available.
