A burglar was caught on camera breaking into a College Station pharmacy, and now police have arrested a suspect.
Investigators say tips from viewers who saw the video on our newscast helped them catch the man.
In the video a man can be seen smashing the door to get into the GoldStar Pharmacy in the St. Joseph Medical Office Building on Highway 6 early yesterday morning.
Police say he stole prescription pain killers and anti-anxiety pills before leaving.
