Medicine, Money and Mail Stolen
Police are investigating several incidents reported in the past few days in which medications, money, and mail have been taken. The mail thieves hit some boxes on Locust Grove Road, taking at least two checks out of the boxes that were made out to Santa's Workshop, the annual fund-raiser put on by the Cookeville Junior Women's Club. Meanwhile, the medicine was taken from a man on Mockingbird Hill Circle who left his apartment to go to the hospital and returned to find nearly 100 pain pills missing from his home. They were identified as Oxycontin, Xanax, and Dilaudid. In the third instance, police report that case was taken from at least three cars that had been left unlocked in the area of Sutton Place and Raider Drive. Investigation is continuing.
