(01/13/14) - Talk about the right place - at the right time.
When an alarm went off at the Sanford Family Pharmacy early Sunday morning, a Midland County sheriff's lieutenant was right across the street.
After a short chase, the thieves crashed their car.
Both got out and ran away. One was arrested quickly. The other had to be tracked down with a K-9 officer.
Both men are 20-years-old and from the Detroit area.
"Due to similarities with other breaking and enterings we've had throughout the Tri-County area, we believe that we are investigating to see if these two are linked to other possible breaking and enterings," said Scott Stephenson, Midland County Sheriff.
Investigators found more than 70 prescription pill bottles in their car when they were arrested.
