[January 27, 2010]  MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A burglar who broke into a Medford pharmacy had the right letter, but not the right drugs.

Police said someone broke out a window Saturday night at the West Main Pharmacy and grabbed the prescriptions in the "O" section. The Mail Tribune in Medford said investigators think the burglar was after the narcotic oxycodone -- but the drugs in that section were filed alphabetically by customers' last names.

No arrests have been made. But police said the burglary could be related to a robbery at the same drugstore on Friday and an attempted robbery of another pharmacy that day.
