TOWNSEND — Police released the name and photo of a Leominster man they believe broke into a pharmacy and stole prescription medication last November.
Brian Deleon, 25, has a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly burglarizing McNabb’s Pharmacy, located at 223 Main St., around 4:55 a.m. Nov. 19, according to a Townsend Police Department press release.
During an initial investigation of the crime scene, police said they were able to secure evidence, including a finger and palm print. On July 29, police said they were contacted by the Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab, which determined the prints matched Deleon.
According to police, further investigation revealed Deleon drove a car similar to the one identified as that involved in the early-morning burglary.
A warrant was granted for Deleon on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old is currently at-large in the Leominster area, police said. He is described as 6-foot-1, black hair, brown eyes and weighing approximately 180 pounds.
Deleon is believed to be driving a silver Toyota Corolla with Massachusetts plates.
Anyone with information should contact Townsend Police Officer Jeffrey Giles at 978-597-6214, ext.1522.
