Florida Men caught after robbing drug store by trail of pills

UNDATED (AP) — Some crimes are solved by following a paper trail. Some are solved by investigators following a money trail. In this case, authorities in Florida made quick work of an investigation into a drug store break-in — by following a trail of pill bottles. Two men broke into a CVS in Clearwater on New Year’s Day and made off with more than 10,000 pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone. As they drove away, the men emptied pills from the bottles — and flipped the bottles out the window of the getaway car. That made it easy for police to track down the suspects. When the trail of pill bottles ended, they found the suspects and matched them to images on surveillance video. The two — and a third accomplice — are all under arrest, facing a variety of drug-related charges.
