Open Home Drug Robberies

Addicts caught in the grips of their addiction will often do just about anything to get high just one more time. Lying, cheating, and stealing come right out of the addict's handbook to success when it comes to getting their fix in many cases. Now, prescription drug thieves are going in to Open Homes for sale just to see what’s in the medicine cabinet, ABC News reports.

Most homeowners typically lock up valuables, such as jewelry - but who thinks to lock up their meds? A San Diego realtors’ group is warning homeowners about these thefts.

“The take away here is common sense,” Anthony Manolatos of the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors told ABC News. “When an agent is showing your home and you’re not there, take your valuables with you or lock them in a safe.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has observed this trend. “Stealing drugs from open houses is indeed a technique drug thieves use to obtain controlled substance prescription drugs,” said the DEA’s Barbara Carreno. She said drugs stolen during open houses include opioid painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs, ADHD drugs, Xanax and Valium.

DEA enforcement groups, called tactical diversion squads, have found drugs on the street that originated at someone’s open home, Carreno added.
