FORT MADISON – A $1,000 reward is being offered for information in connection with the Monday morning burglary at Rashid Pharmacy & Wellness in Fort Madison.
The pharmacy owner, Joe Rashid, said Monday morning he is offering $1,000 for information that leads Fort Madison police to the suspects involved in the incident.
Rashid said the burglars cut the phone lines to the building at about 3:30 Monday morning and then broke in a door to see if the alarm had been disconnected.
“They cased the place for about two hours after cutting the lines and then came back and took some narcotics,” Rashid said.
He said he couldn’t divulge additional information because the investigation is underway. He said there is video evidence and that will be released today to help with the investigation.
The store was closed for about three hours until about 11 a.m. when it was reopened for business.
Anyone with information on the incident should contact the Fort Madison Police Department at 372-2525.
