Police say the woman returned to the pharmacy a day later with another suspect and carted off a large safe.

The (Decatur) Herald & Review reports that police searching the woman's home found prescription labels in a trash can.

Officers arrested the pair as well as a third person living at the home. They were being held on preliminary charges of burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstruction of justice.
