A cutting torch was used to break into the Lake Wylie Pharmacy, according to York County Sheriff’s Office report. Three pill bottles valued at more than $2,000 were stolen.

Deputies arrived April 26 at 221 Latitude Lane after an alarm sounded at 3:18 a.m., according to the report, to find the back door being held open by a rock. “The metal lock plate and lock had apparently been cut with some kind of cutting torch,” the report states.

Three pill bottles of Adderall, narcotics valued at $700 each, were reported missing, the report states. Nothing else appeared disturbed, however an inventory would be done to tell exactly which pills were missing from shelves, the report states.
