Pascagoula - A pharmacist in southeastern Mississippi says a pharmacy burglar got a surprise when he broke into his business to steal pain medication - the pills had been replaced with beans.

Pharmacist Mac Clark works at a pharmacy in Pascagoula in the US state of Missouri.

Mac Clark decided he needed a decoy.

Investigators believe the burglar cut him or herself during the break-in because they found a trail of blood leading away from the building.
