Criminals crash into Kansas City pharmacy, steal narcotics

KANSAS CITY - A longtime Kansas City pharmacist says two criminals crashed a van into his building early Thursday and stole drugs.

Shortly before 3 a.m. third generation pharmacist Pete Spalitto says a pair of criminals rammed a van into the side of his building in the 3800 block of Independence Avenue, stole some narcotics and fled.

The crash left a hole in the side door and wall.

The van was left in the parking lot.

No injuries were reported.

The pharmacy has been in the neighborhood since 1929, and Spalitto says he hopes to be back to delivering for some customers later Thursday.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police.
