Another break-in-possibly drug-related-at a Williamstown drugstore.

This one happened in the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday morning.

Nothing was reported taken, but surveillance video shows three white males breaking into the Williamstown Pharmacy on Highland Avenue.

Two of the men, wearing hoodies, forced their way inside.

The third was seen climbing onto the roof.

Police believe two of the suspects were involved in another unsuccessful attempted break-in two months ago.

"They were able to get into the store, but, quite honestly, only for seconds, and they did not obtain anything on the way out," says Police Chief Shawn Graham. "So there have been three attempts, one successful, in the last 15 months, 14 months."

A large amount of prescription drugs were taken in the previous attempt last year.

If you see any suspicious activity-or have any information about this latest break-in-contact the Williamstown Police Department or 911.
