GREENFIELD -- Greenfield police are investigating a smash-and-grab break-in that happened at a pharmacy.

"We`re back. The SAC is back," Mike Ludens with the Southridge Athletic Club said.

"For the most part, you don't hear about that too often in Greenfield. We're just trying to create as good of a service as we can for everybody, and make it safe -- whether it's that parking lot or the one next door," Ludens said.

"I`m shocked! I can't believe people would stoop that low -- to go into a pharmacy," Wade Griffin said.

Police said it happened around 4:00 a.m. Thursday. Multiple masked suspects broke the window and began tampering with registers. It's unclear whether any money was taken.

At this point, it is not believed any pharmaceuticals were stolen, as the area where they are stored remained secure Thursday.

Ludens said the crime had him thinking a little differently.

"We don't have that stuff here, so I don't have to worry about that, thank God. We're actually on the other end of that spectrum. It's in the back of your head, yeah. I mean, any time there's security issues in your surrounding neighborhood, you have to kinda pay attention to that," Luden said.

Greenfield police said they're in the early stages of their investigation, and would appreciate any help the public can provide. If you have any information, you're asked to give them a call at 414-761-5300.

    Probably for opiates. Big epidemic, we will see more and more of this. Won’t be long when pharmacies will have armed security guards.
