A burglar was hoping to stock up on beer, smokes, and pills, just before Christmas. He smashed his way into a Lutz Walgreens not once, but twice, in the same night.

Surveillance video shows the burglar smashing the front door of the Walgreens at 3890 Van Dyke Road, at 1:29 a.m., December 24. He climbed through the broken door, then snatched up one case of Budweiser beer, two cases of Bud Light beer and two cartons of Marlboro Special Blend cigarettes.

Investigators believe the same person returned at 3:18, this time, smashing a window in the pharmacy. An alarm sounded, and the store's lights turned on, as the burglar tried to remove pain medication. He ran away.

Deputies believe the burglar is a white male, 30-40 years of age, approximately 5'11"-6'2", 170-190 lbs., medium build, brown hair. He was last seen wearing black jacket with hood, blue jeans and white athletic shoes.
