Staff at the Denton Prescription Store are checking surveillance footage and trying to determine what was taken after a break-in early Sunday, according to a police report.

Around 3:30 a.m., the Denton Police Department was dispatched to the store in the 2500 block of West Oak Street after an alarm went off. Police at the store saw glass from a sliding window was broken but the doors were still locked, according to the report.

A store employee arrived and the report says they noticed inconsistencies throughout the store. They told officers after the initial walk-through that they believe medications were taken.

A report was taken and an investigation is ongoing.
