RSPD Sgt. Troy Young said it was obvious that there was significant evidence around the building as he began to investigating a break-in at the Medical Arts Building last Friday morning.
"There was blood on all the door knobs where they trying to get into all of the offices," Young said. "They busted in the door at Dr. Peck's office."
The office building, located near the Russell County Hospital in Russell Springs, was entered through a window, which is where Police Chief Joe Irvin said it was likely a thief was cut.
Aside from doctors' offices there is a pharmacy in the building, but the police said that was not entered.
Young said that in the pre dawn hours Saturday another attempt was apparently made on the building.
A white SUV or van was seen near the building and a door was found open.
He was not able to speculate on whether it was the same person or persons who had broken in Friday, or if it was someone else.
The breakin was discovered at 6:15 Friday morning when an employee arrived for work. Young said that though the thief or thieves did not gain access to Grider Drug # 2, they did manage to steal one vile of injectable pain medication.
He said the investigation is continuing and blood evidence will be tested for DNA.
Police asked that anyone with any information relating to this crime call the Russell Springs Police Department at 866-3636 or the Russell County 911 Dispatch Center at 343-6600.
