Tyngsborough Police Searching for Pharmacy Burglary Suspects

TYNGSBOROUGH — Chief Richard Howe reports that the Tyngsborough Police Department is actively searching for two suspects allegedly involved in the Burglary of a local pharmacy this morning.  On Saturday, April 1 at approximately 5:56 a.m., Tyngsborough Police received a 911 call reporting a breaking and entering in progress at the Tyngsborough Family Pharmacy, located at 138 Middlesex Road.  The caller also reported that the suspects left the area heading north on Middlesex Road driving a gray pickup truck with a yellow strobe light on the roof.

An officer who was in the area observed a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle’s description traveling north on Middlesex Road. Police attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop, but when the driver failed to stop, a pursuit ensued.

Police pursued the suspect vehicle onto Westford Road and then onto Route 3 northbound where police ultimately terminated the pursuit at the New Hampshire state line due to the threat to public safety.  

The suspect vehicle is described as a gray Dodge Ram pickup truck with chrome wheel rims, a yellow strobe light on the roof and Florida license plates containing the letters D and X.

This incident remains under investigation. Tyngsborough Police believe this incident may be related to a similar break-in in a nearby community. Anyone with additional information about the incident or suspect vehicle should immediately contact Tyngsborough Police at 978-649-7504.
