Pickup Truck Crashes Into Building For Robbery. Again.
Recovering from a natural disaster is difficult enough. One Houston clinic that suffered severe damage during Hurricane Harvey is now having to make repairs once again after a pickup truck crashed into the building.
ABC 13 in Phoenix reports that at around 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 17th, surveillance video shows the driver of the suspect vehicle back into the building, smashing the wall followed by three additional suspects running in.
One of the doctors on staff at Bretshire Medical Clinic, Dr. Jim La Rosa, told reporters he thinks that the suspects may have been people who were able to loot the clinic pharmacy during the hurricane, but came up empty-handed this time.
“hey were going to bust down the door and the wall and grab all these wonderful drugs,” Dr. La Rosa said.
The on-site pharmacy that was previously located at the clinic was not rebuilt and was recently offered up for lease. At the time of the break-in, the space was completely empty.
No one was in the building at the time. According to Dr. La Rosa, a nearby neighbor had heard the crash and chased the suspects from the area with a shotgun.
The clinic is still currently open, and while the latest damage to the building has made things a little inconvenient, clinic staff and patients are maintaining a good sense of humor. Dr. La Rosa said one of his nurse practitioners recently told a patient that now the clinic now has drive-thru service.
Police are still searching for the suspects responsible for the crash.
