LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Las Vegas Pharmacy is out nearly $2,000 after a break-in Saturday night, according to the store owner.

“It makes you nervous,” said Modupe Irorobeje, owner of Providence Pharmacy.

Irorobeje said three suspects broke into the back of the store and stole narcotics including anti-psychotic and anti-anxiety drugs.

“The trauma of being burglarized is a lot,” Irorobeje said. "(But) it could have been a lot worse. It could have happened in the day.”

Irorobje said this was the first time the pharmacy has been burglarized, however she’s noticed more crime in the area.

Just a few doors down, a man attempted to rob an electronics repair store near Eastern and Charleston.

"I was really nervous," said Miguel Gonzalez, who owns Wireless Clinic.

In the surveillance video provided by Gonzalez, the man walks in, looks around, then kicks down a glass display case. While the man grabbed at cell phones, the store owner ran to a safe in the back, got a gun and ran back.

"When he knocked down (the display case), I just decided to go get my gun out of the safe," said Gonzalez. "I wanted to get him out of the store as quick as possible."

Both business owners said they filed police reports. Police said they have not arrested anyone in either case.
