Pharmacy thief gets egg on his face

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.

The pharmacy had been broken into several times in the past six months and each time the burglar stole the same drug.

Mac Clark decided he needed a decoy.

He put kidney beans in a large bottle and on Wednesday, the burglars came back.

The only thing he stole was the large bottle filled with beans.

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

      free health care doesn't mean free medication, even in Canada where health-care is "free" you have to pay for all your own prescription medication.

    I'd have replaced the painkillers with a more powerful drug that would have knocked out the thief cold about 30 min. later ... somewhere dangerous!
