Burglars Take Narcotics From Pharmacies in Tate & Ball Ground



1/25/2021

The following information was posted on Pickens Sheriff's Office Facebook page:

On January 25, 2021, at approximately 4:16 am, three individuals entered Bell's Pharmacy in Tate using a crowbar to pry open the front door. They were able to gain access to the pharmacy area of the store and removed a significant amount of narcotics. The three suspects were wearing black pants, black hoodies, and masks. One is seen holding a yellow crowbar and another one was holding a blue steel, semi-automatic handgun.

At approximately 4:35 am, the same three entered the Ball Ground Pharmacy in Ball Ground and took more narcotics. A late model white, four-door car is seen in the Ball Ground surveillance video.

It appears the same group is responsible for other drug store burglaries in Covington, Newnan, and Gwinnett earlier in January.

Surrounding pharmacies, please take any necessary precautions and be on the lookout.
