San Diego police officers are investigating reports of break-ins at two CVS Pharmacy retailers that occurred within the same hour overnight.

A burglar or burglars targeted the CVS Pharmacy in Rancho Bernardo and Grantville at the 2 a.m. hour, according to authorities.

In the Grantville CVS Pharmacy, the burglar or burglars were unsuccessful in breaking through the front of the retailer. Instead, they broke through the drive-up window of the pharmacy shortly after 2 a.m. but once inside, were unable to access the locked area of the pharmacy where prescription drugs are kept.

Police said the loss at the Grantville retailer "appears minimal" but will continue investigating the incident.

Just 40 minutes after targeting the Grantville location, the thieves moved on to the Rancho Bernardo retailer and threw a rock at the front window. However, it does not appear the suspect or suspects actually entered the CVS. As a result, authorities are investigating that incident as an attempted burglary.

It is unclear how many people were involved in the break-ins. Police did not immediately have a suspect description available.

No injuries were immediately reported in connection to either incident. It appears each location was empty at the time of the thefts.
