The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft of some potentially deadly drugs stolen in a burglary at Lima's Pharmacy on Harrison Avenue in Eureka. A deputy responded to an alarm at the business on Harrison Avenue about 4:20 this morning. The deputy checked the main building which was secure; however the deputy saw wet tracks in the lawn to a smaller building behind the main building. The deputy saw the door to that building was kicked in and there was a shoe print below the handle and the inside of the building had been ransacked.
The pharmacy stored non-narcotic medications in that building, many of which were stolen. The pharmacist says, if taken and not prescribed, a person could have serious medical issues or even die.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office.
