When officers arrived at the pharmacy, the man ran out the back door. He was caught in a nearby apartment complex.

Atlanta Police Capt. Adam Lee III said the man was attempting to steal pain medications.

Warrants found for the suspect revealed he is possibly wanted in other jurisdictions for burglary. His name was not released.
