PORTAGE WKZO) -- Portage police have released more details about a foiled burglary at the West Lake Drug on Portage Road early yesterday morning.

They say when the initial break-in alarm was tripped at 2:25AM, they happened to have an officer practically in front of the building. Three of the four suspects had gone inside and were loading pills, including Oxycondone and other narcotics into a large garbage barrel.

Police located a getaway car parked in back and a 4th suspect inside. While they were arresting him, the other three fled on foot. They were later spotted walking along Portage Road by the officer transporting their suspect to jail and arrested.

Formal charges against the four drug thieves from Ohio could come today.
