METAIRIE, La. (March 18, 2013)--Investigators in Jefferson Parish Louisiana were able to track down a man suspected of stealing drugs from a pharmacy because the pickax used to break into the store was left behind with the price tag still on it.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Col. John Fortunato said the sticker included a bar code indicating when and where the pickax was bought, and it turns out the store had surveillance video of the purchase.
Fortunato said a store near the pharmacy had surveillance video from the night of the burglary, showing the same man and a vehicle license plate.
Fortunato says drugs from the pharmacy were found during a search of the home of Scott Rodrigue, 43.
Rodrigue is free on $70,000 bond, facing charges of pharmacy burglary and drug possession.
