Deputies have yet to link break-ins at three Walgreens stores in northwest Harris Co.

At least three Walgreens were broken into overnight, and in each case crooks smashed their way in through the pharmacy drive-thru window.

The first happened Tuesday night around 9:30 at the Walgreens off FM 1960 near Jones Road.

Several Precinct 4 deputy constable cars surrounded the pharmacy, though it's unclear what if any prescription medication was taken. Investigators didn't say if anyone was arrested.

At 3:15am, the Walgreens on Highway 249 near Northpointe Boulevard was hit.

The drive-thru window was smashed, creating a hole for thieves to climb through.

Investigators haven't said what was stolen.

Then, 45 minutes later, about 10 miles north, a third Walgreens was broken into.

At 4am, the alarm sounded at the Walgreens on Bammel North Houston Road near West Richey.

When our crew arrived, a mile wide perimeter had been formed around the pharmacy.

Several deputies were searching a nearby field by flashlight.

The drive-thru pharmacy window had also been smashed.

It's unclear what was taken or if anyone was arrested.
