D.C. man arrested for pharmacy burglaries in Del Ray and West End

A 23-year-old Washington, D.C. man faces at least two years in prison for allegedly breaking into two Alexandria pharmacies late last year.

The suspect will go to court April 28  on two counts of entering a structure to commit larceny and stealing more than $1,000 from the Walgreens at 1517 Mount Vernon Avenue in Del Ray on Dec. 8, 2020, and the MedPlus pharmacy at 5130 Duke Street in the West End, on Dec. 18.

Alexandria Police identified the suspect via security footage. The suspect was seen with an unidentified man allegedly stealing narcotics and then getting into a dark-colored Dodge Charge in the parking lot.

The suspect was not arrested after the discovery.

Instead, police placed a GPS tracker on the Dodge Charger and 10 days later discovered that it was parked in front of the MedPlus pharmacy at the same time that it was being robbed of narcotics, according to a search warrant affidavit.

APD, in coordination with the Metropolitan Police Department, caught up with the suspect at his home in northeast D.C. He was arrested on Jan. 26, and remains in the city jail.

There, officers found “narcotics listed as stolen by employees of both MedPlus and Walgreens,” according to police.
