This CCTV image shows a burglar leaving the Elmore Pharmacy last Tuesday after stealing 18 boxes of painkillers.

Bendigo police are investigating a break-in at Elmore Pharmacy where a man stole medication.

Detective Senior Constable Glen Fisher of Bendigo police said the incident took place on Tuesday morning from 3.29am to 3.31am.

He said a man smashed the glass on the front door to access the building and broke the alarm box on the front of the premises.

He said the man was wearing a balaclava, dark jumper and track pants with light stripes down the side.

Detective Senior Constable Fisher said the man was of thin build and 185cm tall.

The man was seen running along Railway Place and down an alleyway across from the Elmore Post Office after the incident.

Detective Senior Constable Fisher said a four-door Sedan was seen travelling in the direction of Rochester 10 minutes later.

He said he was unaware if the two incidents were connected.

Pharmacy owner Teresa Pham said 18 boxes of Panadeine Forte were stolen.

She said about $1000 worth of damage was done to her shop.

Mrs Pham said she was ‘‘very disappointed’’ to learn about the incident.

The offender was caught on CCTV, which Campaspe News hopes to publish online in the coming days.

Any information about this incident can be given to Bendigo police on 54481300 or Crime Stoppers 1800333000.
