Law enforcement searching for Leighton burglary suspect

LEIGHTON, Ala. – The Leighton Police Department needs help identifying a would-be burglar.  On December 1, surveilance footage captured someone attempting to breakiin to Leighton Pharmacy just before 10:45 p.m. In the video, you can see a Chevrolet Colorado extended cab truck drive through the frame.  The burglary suspect hops out of his truck and walks past the camera to the side of the building.

Leighton police said the man stayed on the side of the building for a couple of minutes. They believe he may have tried to get into a side door. When that didn’t work he busted out a window to try to get in. What he didn’t realize was the burglar alarm was set. The suspect then high-tailed it across the parking lot where he made his escape.
