Police: 2 people from Brooklyn accused of stealing thousands in medication from Eastchester pharmacy
Two people from Brooklyn face charges for stealing thousands of dollars in over-the-counter medications from a pharmacy in Eastchester, according to police.
Police say 40-year-old Ernesto Serrano and 39-year-old Velvet Jefferson entered the Walgreens on White Plains Road last Thursday and stole about $5,000.
They drove off, but the NYPD stopped them.
An investigation revealed that the two had about $8,000 worth of assorted over-the-counter medication thought to be the proceeds of other larcenies elsewhere, according to authorities.
Both were charged with grand larceny.
Serrano was also wanted for numerous charges in Brooklyn, including grand larceny.
Both are being held in the Westchester County Jail as the investigation continues.
