A 10-day search for a suspected Valley Head pharmacy burglar ended Wednesday with charges against a Fort Payne man, according to DeKalb Sheriff Jimmy Harris.
Harris said authorities were called to Valley Head Drugs on May 23 on reports the pharmacy had been burglarized. Police arrived to find the front door had been smashed, causing about $500 in damage and 100 Hydrocodone pills were missing.
Harris said authorities reviewed video surveillance tapes, as well as footage from other local merchants. He said Investigator Mitchell Dendy and DeKalb Drug Task Force agent Jim Phillips received enough information from the community and the tapes to identify a suspect.
On Wednesday, Corey Gene Ingram, 31, was arrested at his Fort Payne home. He was charged with second-degree theft of property, third-degree burglary and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
