Pharmaceutical burglary leaves five people arrested

Anita Miller -  Managing Editor

San Marcos Police arrested five Houston residents for burglarizing a pharmacy on Medical Parkway early Friday.

Officers responded to a burglar alarm at 3:52 a.m. and found a car with its engine running and license plate covered.

The five suspects apparently fled in different directions. Over the course of “the next few hours,” the city says police looked for them, arresting one with the help of a K-9 officer in a field behind the Hays County Government Center. Other were located along Broadway Drive.

Officers provide cover as victims of a simulated active shooter are loaded into an ambulance.

 On the same day two police officers were gunned down in Iowa, U.S. Rep. John R. Carter, (R-Round Rock), led a tour of the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University. 

The ALERRT Center is a national leader in training first responders and others how to best react to situations involving active shooters. 

“The threat of active shooters is increasingly real as we have seen in Dallas, Orlando and San Bernardino,” Carter said.
