Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that helps capture two men wanted in an overnight prescription pill heist.

Anthony D. Barton, 20, and Dale J. Chodorowski, 22, are wanted on suspicion of second-degree burglary. Spokane police say they broke into the Community Health Association of Spokane clinic on North Maple Street on March 2 and stole more than 2,400 pills of hydrocodone and the anti-anxiety medicine clonazepam.

A cell phone left near a broken pharmacy door led detectives to the suspects. Barton’s last known address was 1311 S. Westcliff Place, Apt. 401; Chodorowski’s was 6029 N. Mayfair St., Apt. 7, according to Crime Stoppers.

Anyone with information on Barton’s or Chodorowski’s location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS or submit the tips online.
