Okla. burglar only nabs M&Ms, not drugs

A pharmacy burglar in Oklahoma got away, but the loot they made off with amounted to pill bottles of M&Ms, according to this report:

Police arrived on scene, cleared the building and looked for suspect vehicles leaving the area. The front glass doors had been broken and the pharmacy appeared to have been burglarized, police said.
[Officer Josh] Pratt and the pharmacist entered the pharmacy through a back door and did a cursory check to see what was taken. The pharmacist told police it appeared the only items taken were four hydrocodone bottles. Hydrocodone is one of the most abused drugs in the state, according to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.
Due to previous burglaries, all four bottles were filled only with M&M candy, police said. The two panes of glass were valued at $300, and the pill bottles and contents were valued at $2. No suspects were located and no witnesses were identified at the time the report was filed, police said.
