BLISSFIELD, Mich. — Police are investigating an early morning break-in at the Schmidt and Son Pharmacy in the Lenawee County community of Blissfield, the second pharmacy break-in that has occurred in the county in two days.
Officers responded to a burglar alarm at 4:20 a.m. today at 177 West Brooke Lane. Officers found a glass window to the office area broken out. A surveillance video shows two people entering the pharmacy office, then going into the pharmacy area behind the counter where they took several bottles of medication.

Of the suspects seen on the video inside the pharmacy, one of the suspects was wearing a coat, jeans, and a stocking-type mask covering the face. The second suspect is Caucasian who was wearing a coat, jeans, and a baseball type hat with a bandana covering the face.
