Lehan Drugs robbed overnight

DeKALB – Police are looking for information about an overnight break-in in which cash and prescription drugs were stolen from Lehan Drugs, 1407 S. Fourth St. in DeKalb.

The burglary occurred sometime between 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect or suspects broke the door with a crow bar, disabled the alarm system and cut phone and Internet lines at the property, said Jim Lehan, Lehan Drugs business director.

Police have no leads or suspects at this time, said John Petragallo, DeKalb police commander.

The store was closed until about 2 p.m. Wednesday to give crews time to allow the business to function properly, Lehan said.

"Anytime something like this happens, you're definitely shaken up a little bit," he said. "I think getting back to being open and serving our patients will help things get back to normal."

Lehan suspects nonlocals are responsible. He said he has heard of similar break-ins at nonchain pharmacies in Decatur, Bloomington and Princeton. But Petragallo said police don't know if the break-ins are related.

Anyone with information is asked to call the DeKalb Police Department at 815-748-8400 or Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272.
