PEKIN — A burglary has occurred at the Pekin Prescription Lab, 1016 Court St. The incident was reported Tuesday morning.
“We received a call this morning at 7:17 a.m. when an employee showed up for work,” Pekin Police Information Officer Billie Ingles said Tuesday afternoon. “They discovered a burglary to the business. The scene is still being processed.”
An Illinois State Police Crime Scene investigator vehicle was parked at the business just before noon. The business’s lot was sealed off with crime scene tape.
A message on the The Pekin Prescription Laboratory said that the “Lab will open late today, Tuesday, September 18th. We will update everyone as soon as possible. Waiting on the State Police to investigate an overnight incident.”
A post to the same Facebook page at about 2 p.m. said the lab was back open.
