DEA Releases 40 More Photos of Suspected Baltimore Pharmacy Looters
The Drug Enforcement Administration released 40 more photos of people suspected of looting 30 pharmacies in Baltimore during the April riots.
Two methadone clinics were also ransacked in the chaos that followed the death of Freddie Gray while he was in police custody.
In all, authorities are looking for 70 people and still trying to identify suspects using surveillance photos and video.
The mass looting of pharmacies is believed to be responsible for a flood of drugs - estimated at 180,000 doses - hitting the streets in recent weeks.
That influx of drugs is said to be fueling turf wars between gangs and the huge increase in violence.
"Narcotics and trafficking breeds violence. Drugs breed violence and there's no way of getting around that. Any time you have a flood of narcotics, you will have a flood of violence unfortunately," said DEA special agent Shawn Ellerman.
The stolen prescription drugs include OxyContin, oxycodone, Adderall, saboxin, methadone, and fentanyl drugs.
