BRUNSWICK — Brunswick authorities are offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest of a man who broke into a pharmacy inside a grocery store, while the pharmacy was closed, but the store was open.

The incident occurred just before 11 p.m. July 31 at the Osco Pharmacy inside Shaws supermarket at 147 Bath Road.

The man pried the pharmacy door open and took prescription drugs, police said. Security images show the man with a mustache, wearing a hat with a brim like a baseball cap, a black sweatshirt and baggy gray pants.

The reward is being offered by Purdue Pharma as part of the RxPATROL program, a cooperative effort among the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacists and police to share information on pharmacy theft. Purdue Pharma manufactures OxyContin, a painkiller that also is popular with drug abusers and can lead to addiction.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call an anonymous hotline at 888-479-8477.
