3 masked men burglarize Dunwoody drug store

Dunwoody police are looking for three men who broke into a drug store in the Dunwoody Village area Thursday. The burglary at Carlton's Concord Pharmacy comes about a week after three men crashed a truck into a CVS across the street and tried to steal an ATM.

During the incident Thursday, the three men broke the front door window with a rubber hammer before pushing it in about 4:15 a.m., according to surveillance video. 

They entered Carlton’s and took “a few items” before running away, Dunwoody police said in a statement. Officers patrolling the area heard the business’ alarm sound before the police department received a 911 call, spokesman Sgt. Robert Parsons said.

The burglars ran away just before officers arrived, Parsons said. They were seen on the surveillance video wearing blue hoodies, gloves and coverings over their faces. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Robert Barrett at 678-382-6934 or robert.barrett@dunwoodyga.gov.

Surveillance video shows crash, attempted ATM burglary at Dunwoody CVS

About one week ago, surveillance video from the CVS on Mt. Vernon Road — essentially across the street from Carlton’s — showed three men back a pickup truck through the front entryway and attempt to steal an ATM. They ultimately fled before officers arrived and did not get away with the ATM.

Parsons said investigators do not know whether those same men also targeted Carlton’s, “but it’s certainly possible.”
