Algood police have a new lead in the Algood Drugs burglary.
Algood Police Chief Dale Armour confirmed the police department has surveillance footage of one suspect. Armour said the footage is currently being enhanced to identify the suspect.
“We have several videos,” Armour said. “We do have some stuff from Fentress County, and we have some stuff locally here. We canvased the neighborhoods for cameras. We talked to neighbors who had cameras set up on their house and talked to businesses. We have several sources of video.”
Armour said the items used for the Algood Drugs break in matched an attempted burglary that same morning in Fentress County. Officials suspect the two cases are related.
“We requested that morning to the TBI to come and assist us cause we knew we had a multi jurisdictional issue,” Armour said. “It was not just Algood.”
The Algood Drugs owner provided police with a list of stolen items including fentanyl and morphine. Armour said no money was taken during the break-in.
“We requested for the DEA, and they have been very helpful and forthcoming with us,” Armour said. “They see burglaries everywhere and may see something on a bigger scale to help us.”
Armour said at this time, the police department knows of two suspects involved. One witness saw the perpetrators that morning and reported descriptions of the suspects. Armour said one of the camera systems was disabled upon arrival at the drug store.
