CdA police looking for person with purloined pills

Coeur d’Alene police are looking for a thief who stole a bottle of prescription pills sometime late Tuesday by cutting a hole in a screen window and swiping them from the sill.

The owner of the home in the 1500 block of Sixth Street called police after 8 p.m. Tuesday to report the theft. Authorities believe the thief walked up to a south-facing window that was cracked and cut a hole in the screen with a knife or other sharp object, then took the bottle of pills that is valued at $20. Police did not say what type of pills were taken, though the thief selected a specific brand of medicine and left other prescriptions on the sill alone.

The case is being investigated as a felony residential burglary. No arrests have been made.
