PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police need your help to find Fox 12's most wanted after two pharmacies were robbed Wednesday.

Officers went to Tran Pharmacy at 3:17 this morning on Northeast 78th and Sandy after an alarm was triggered. The second one burglary happened 30 minutes later on 42nd and Sandy  at Paulson's Pharmacy.

In both cases, the windows in front had been broken.

The thief took a variety of prescription drugs including bottles ready for customers to come pick up from Paulson's Pharmacy.

The owner of Tran Pharmacy told Fox 12 that he has a locked metal gate in the room where all of the prescriptions are kept. The thief was not able to take anything from that pharmacy.

Investigators said they don't know if these two burglaries are related, but the similarities make them believe they could be connected.
