Robbery suspect falls through pharmacy roof
(CBS) Philadelphia - Police are looking for two suspects in connection with a robbery at a Philadelphia pharmacy that was caught on surveillance video, which shows one suspect repeatedly falling to the ground as he tries to flee after the break-in, CBS Philly reports.
The robbery happened at about 3:05 p.m. on Nov. 22, Thanksgiving, at the Healing Pharmacy in the city's Germantown section.
According to investigators, the two burglars climbed onto the roof and gained entry by breaking a hole in it. Then the ceiling gave way and one suspect came crashing through and landed hard onto the floor.
The suspect seemed dazed, but then went over to the prescription pill area, took assorted items and put them in a black backpack.
The video shows the suspect then needed numerous tries before he was able to climb back up onto the roof. Both suspects then ran away through a rear driveway.
Police say the suspect inside the pharmacy left behind the backpack and a white construction hardhat.
The hardhat had the words "Perryman Building and Construction" in red on the front and the initials "D.A." in marker on the inside.
