Jan. 18--Thurmont police are investigating a robbery reported at the Weis Markets pharmacy earlier this week that may be linked to similar crimes in the area.

Police were sent shortly after 6:20 p.m. Monday to the Weis store on Thurmont Boulevard, where employees told them that three men had just left the store with several types of medication without paying for them, according to a Thurmont Police Department news release. The men made no effort to disguise the crime, said Lt. Allen Droneburg, a Thurmont police commander.

"They just jumped the counter and helped themselves to what they wanted, then took off," Droneburg said, saying the men stole several bottles of promethazine and codeine, a prescription-strength cold medicine that can act as a narcotic.

Based on the number of men and their actions during the robbery, detectives quickly decided the culprits were likely the same as those involved in similar grab-and-dash robberies reported at other pharmacies and markets in the area, Droneburg said.

"They apparently travel as a group of three," Droneburg said of the group, which he said was also believed to be responsible for robberies in Mount Airy, Taneytown and Westminster.

No one was injured during Monday's robbery and no weapons were either displayed or implied by any of the culprits, Droneburg said.

Police were not releasing further details or descriptions of the robbers as of Wednesday.

"Detective [Gerald] Bowen is working with other several of our partner agencies in other jurisdictions and the investigation is ongoing at this point," Droneburg said. "We don't want to release anything that could jeopardize that."

Anyone who witnessed Monday's robbery or who can otherwise assist police in their investigation was asked to call Bowen at 301-271-0905, extension 115.
