Dave McKnight believes someone tried to break into his pharmacy the same night as the break-in at Wagner's Pharmacy and Edward Jones Investments on Aug. 18.

Members of the Aledo Police Department are investigating an attempted break-in at McKnight's Pharmacy.

Dave McKnight, owner of the pharmacy, said a man he had working on the roof Sept. 8 reported to him that some flashing appeared to have been ripped out.

McKnight added that he believed someone tried to break into his pharmacy the same night as the break-in at Wagner's Pharmacy and Edward Jones Investments on Aug. 18. 

McKnight called the police the next morning and a crime scene technician was on site Sept. 9 gathering evidence from the rooftop.

Aledo Police Chief Mike Sponsler declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.

McKnight said they hadn't had a break-in since about 1978, which was before he owned the pharmacy, but while he was working there.
