Police are asking for help after a burglary at a Wheeler Road medical facility overnight Friday.



Investigators were called Saturday to Augusta Oncology Center, 3696 Wheeler Road, after employees arrived and found the damage.

Investigator Darren Massey said the burglars tried to pry open several doors at the business before opening a window.

Inside the facility, the burglars ransacked desk drawers and the pharmacy and tried to pry open more doors.

Massey said three laptops and $245 were reported stolen. No drugs from the pharmacy were missing.

Police believe the incident occurred between 2 and 4 a.m. Saturday. Anyone with information is asked to contact Massey at (706) 821-1076.

It's actually kind of

It's actually kind of surprising with the narcotic pill epidemic that there was nothing taken from the office pharmacy. It would have been helpful to know which Doctor's office on Wheeler Rd to see if anyone saw anything out of the ordinary. I mean really- A Doctor's office on Wheeler Rd really narrows it down. Maybe the office chose not to have their name published in fear they would be bombarded with calls from patients worried about information safety.

Maybe the idiots don't know what "Oncology" means??? Can't imagine someone wanting to steal cancer drugs?
