Masked burglars caught on camera breaking into Colusa pharmacy; bail before cops arrive

No leads yet, Colusa Police Department says

A pair of suspected burglars were caught on camera last Saturday as they were breaking in through the glass back door of Davison Drug & Stationary, but were gone by the time Colusa police officers responded to an alarm call there.

Responding officers never saw the suspects in person, but reviewed the store’s security camera footage and saw that “possible male subjects, wearing masks and gloves” had forced their way into the building.

One of the subjects was described as wearing a black ski mask, pink sweatshirt, black gloves, blue jeans, and brown dress shoes. The second subject was wearing a black ski mask, black sweatshirt, black gloves, blue jeans and black shoes.

According to a statement from the Colusa Police Department, officers responded to the Colusa business after the store’s alarm was activated at about 4:23 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The department’s K9 was brought in to search the building, which was ultimately found to be clear of unwanted guests.

“(We have) no leads at this point, and the investigation is still ongoing,” Colusa Police Sgt. Eldon Tamez said on Tuesday.

Tamez added that it was unclear whether Saturday’s burglary was connected with an earlier burglary at the pharmacy, which occurred a few months ago.

“We did have one a few months back, but we don’t know if that connected to this recent one in any way,” Tamez said.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact investigating officer Mikah Hogan at the Colusa Police Department.
