Lee County,  GA (WALB) -  A determined burglar squeezed into a Lee County pharmacy through a drive through window.

25-year-old T. J. Davis is charged with breaking into the Fred's Store on Philema Road around 3:30 Tuesday morning.

The sheriff says Davis squeezed his body into the pharmacy drive-through window tray and took nearly 40 bottles of Hydrocodone and Oxycodone pain killers.

The store alarm went off and when deputies got there, the spotted Davis hiding behind a shopping cart inside the store.

He ran out and jumped into his truck, and deputies tracked him to a house on Philema Road. 

"When is this going to stop?" asked Katrina Glover of Fred's Pharmacy. "This is really getting ridiculous and I know there aren't enough eyes out there to watch everything but this is really getting ridiculous."

"It's an increase on prescription drugs being out there and it's becoming more apparent that there is a problem," said Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals.

Davis remains in the Lee County jail.
