Suspect turns himself in

Kroger pharmacy heist in Fayetteville goes awry

A Fayetteville man suspected of breaking into a Kroger pharmacy over the weekend surrendered to authorities with the Fayetteville Police Department on Wednesday.

The suspect, Justin Blake Moody, 21, turned himself in around noon, said Lt. Mike Whitlow with the Fayetteville Police Department. Moody is suspected of breaking into the pharmacy of the Kroger on South Glynn Street around 9 p.m. Sunday in an attempt to steal two bottles of a controlled substance. However, he was unable to take the bottles with him and left the store empty handed.

According to Whitlow, Moody actually entered the pharmacy, which was closed and locked, by crawling up and over through the ceiling. Moody was able to access the ceiling from the men’s restroom air vent, but he ended up falling through the ceiling tiles into the pharmacy. After Moody found he was unable to exit the pharmacy through its security gate, he abandoned the stolen bottles and crawled back over through the ceiling.

Moody was captured on multiple security cameras inside Kroger, and, according to Whitlow, his family encouraged Moody to turn himself in after his image appeared on the news. He was charged with burglary after turning himself in and was being held in the Fayette County Jail.
