Hospital security catches burglar

December 2, 2003

Colquitt County - Security workers at a south Georgia hospital caught a man breaking into a drug store, and it may not be the first time he's done it.

Forty-five-year-old Charles David Pope of Moultrie is accused of trying to break into The Medicine Shoppe across from Colquitt Regional Medical Center.

Around 11 Monday night, a hospital security officer heard the alarm and saw Pope. Investigators believe he's connected to four other burglary attempts at the same drug store.

Pope lives near the store, he is now in the Colquitt County Jail.
