[ARCHIVED] Police Warn of Prescription Drug Thefts

Contact:          Sgt. Mark Buschena                                                               


Bismarck Police are investigating two thefts of prescription drugs that may be related.

The first occurred on December 6th, 3 p.m., on the 400 block of North 16th Street.  The victim reports a silver SUV pulled into his driveway and a female asked to use his bathroom.  He let her in and when she left he discovered he was missing a bottle of prescription medication.  Prior to asking to use the bathroom she had told another resident she had a low tire and asked to use an air pump. 

The suspect is described as a white female, 35 to 45 years old, dirty blonde curly hair, 5’ to 5’2”, small build, wearing dark dress pants and a dress shirt.   The SUV was silver, unknown make or model but similar to a Chevy Traverse. 

The second case happened on the 700 block of East Central Avenue on December 12th at 3:30 p.m.   The victim reports a female came to her door stating her car had a flat tire and she really needed to use the bathroom.  The victim let the woman use her bathroom and when she left the victim discovered she was missing her bottle of prescription medication. 

The suspect in this case is described as a white female, in her 50’s, about 5’7”, with sandy brown hair and glasses.  She is described as looking “slightly disheveled.”  She had a newer silver car. 

Both cases remain under investigation.  If you have information about either case, please call the Bismarck Police Department at 223-1212.  To report information anonymously call Bismarck Area Crime Stoppers at 224-TIPS, (224-8477). 

Police warn against letting strangers into your home, and ask if this person shows up at your home to try to get a license number and call law enforcement immediately.
