A medicine cabinet inside the room had also been forced open. A later inventory revealed the burglar or burglars had stolen 500 hydrocodone tablets, 700 carisoprodol tablets, 1,000 tablets of aprazolam, 600 clonazepam tablets and 150 tablets of diazepam. Two other medicine cabinets in the room were left untouched.
