Two thieves were being sought by local sheriff’s deputies Thursday after they stole more than $1,000 worth of painkillers — and pregnancy kits. Shortly before 10:30 a.m., two men — described only as “male, Hispanics” — entered the CVS pharmacy on Sierra Highway at Via Princessa and stole painkillers and pregnancy kits. “Two male Hispanics grabbed a thousand dollars’ worth of stuff and fled in a silver four-door Mercedes,” said Lt. Ignacio Somoano, who heads up the Detective Section of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. Detectives investigating the crime are treating it as a grand theft, he said, since there was no use of force involved in the incident. What the significance is behind the two stolen items of choice is a factor yet to be determined. [email protected] 661-287-5527 On Twitter @jamesarthurholt
