Auburn Police said the alcohol stolen from a CVS pharmacy Monday is worth more than $1,500.

AUBURN — Auburn Police arrested three people after investigating a theft Monday at the CVS Pharmacy, 934 W. 7th St.

At approximately 2:40 p.m., Auburn Police officers responded to the report of a theft and spotted a man leaving the store who matched the description of the suspect. The man entered a vehicle that was occupied by two other people and attempted to flee.

Officers were able to stop the vehicle and detain all three subjects, Chief of Police Martin D. McCoy said in a news release.

The officers determine that two of the three subjects did not have driver’s licensed, and the other had a license that was suspended.

An Auburn Police K-9 was deployed and alerted on the vehicle. A subsequent search by officers found numerous stolen items from both CVS and the local Dollar General store as well as drugs and drug paraphernalia. McCoy said the value of the stolen alcohol alone was more than $1,500.

Police impounded the 2014 Chevy Malibu and arrested all three people.
