SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Police say someone stole more than 12,000 pills of various pain medications from a Salina pharmacy.

Lt. Scott Siemsen says the theft occurred at Jim's Pharmacy during a burglary early Monday. The medicine was valued at over $16,000.

Siemsen says someone used rocks to break a window at the pharmacy. Surveillance video shows a person wearing a camouflage coat and mask entering the store and stealing the pills and cash. The total loss was estimated at $18,167.

The thief stole Diazepan, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Fentanyl and Hydrocodone.

The Salina Journal reports Siemsen said a break-in at Salina Dental might have been related to the theft. A window was broken at the business but nothing appeared to be missing. Damage was estimated at $200.
