Serial burglars break into Hillsboro pharmacy

Sidney M. Lusk, 51, and Myron L. Glover, 47, both of Corsicana, Texas, were arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of burglary after being questioned by Hillsboro Police.

The pair, believed connected to at least nine burglaries throughout the state, are suspected of breaking into Hillsboro Hometown Pharmacy between 2 and 2:20 a.m. Thursday, though nothing was discovered missing.

One suspect was seen on camera prying open the pharmacy door, but left after 40 seconds. State troopers on I-70 near Ellsworth stopped the suspects’ vehicle.

Its tag number matched the number captured on the city’s traffic cameras, chief Dan Kinning said.

“They just came to the wrong place because we have a really good security system at the pharmacy,” he said.

It is not believed they are the same suspects from a January break-in at the pharmacy, Kinning said.

“Pharmacy burglaries are becoming more and more common, as it’s becoming more difficult to get narcotics,” he said.

Lusk and Glover remain in jail in lieu of $25,000 bond each.
