Police in Moultrie are investigating a break-in at Crystal Pharmacy.

It occurred in the 700 block of S. Main Street around 1:30 Wednesday morning.

A Colquitt County Sheriff's deputy was in the area responding to a bomb threat and was called to the pharmacy after the alarm sounded off. The deputy spotted one suspect leaving the facility with multiple medications, that's when the deputy tackled him. The suspect is now in custody.

A second suspect is still at-large.

Surveillance video of the break-in has been handed over to police. The owner of the pharmacy, Scotty Jarvis, said it showed two masked men wearing all dark clothing. 

They were in and out of the pharmacy in about 5 minutes. 

The medications the duo attempted to take were non-narcotics.
