I'm not sure that setting out junkie/criminal bait is that great of an idea for a business, but I guess he got a laugh out of it, and that's really what counts.
Pharmacist Mac Clark at Fred's Drug Store in Pascagoula had been hit by thieves targeting the narcotic pain-killer Lortab three or four times in the last six months, WLOX-TV, Biloxi, Miss., reported Wednesday.
"We know what they're after," Clark said.
Clark said he set the decoy bottle of red beans out as bait.
Around 6 a.m. Wednesday, someone broke into the store, triggering the alarm, and stole something other than what they thought what they thought was a bottle of Lortab, WLOX-TV said.
