A group of burglars have been targeting pharmacies and medical facilities in the Puget Sound region of late, stealing amphetamines and opiates. Seattle Police Department detectives are currently seeking leads on the whereabouts of the suspects, according to the SPD Blotter.

The four thieves typically work as a team, with one standing on lookout while the others break into medical buildings and steal the drugs. Surveillance footage shows them wearing all black and completely covering their faces, going to great lengths to obscure their identity.

Investigators believe that the burglars have hit upwards of 10 medical facilities and pharmacies in and around Seattle, as well six in other nearby cities since approximately June.

Despite the difficulty in identifying in them, police are nonetheless hoping that someone may be able to recognize them from the footage. Anyone with helpful information is asked to call 911 or 206-386 1855.
