A relatively large quantity of narcotics and controlled drugs was taken from Grantsville's Rite-Aid Pharmacy during the late night hours Sunday or Monday morning.

Thieves jimmied a side door to gain entrance, according to manager Marlene Richards.

One of the drugs taken was Oxy Contin. A Rite-Aid security manager arrived at the store yesterday to take an accurate inventory.

A morning clerk discovered the breaking and entering and called authorities.

Richards said the thieves "got in and out quickly, sorta like professionals." They reportedly cut the phone lines.

"I don't think anything else in the store was taken," she said. Grantsville Chief of Police Charles McCroskey is investigating.
