Drugged up

A crook stole over-the-counter medication from a Kings Highway store on June 22, police said.

The baddie was stuck the allergy medication in his pants and left the store near E. 16th Street at about 12:30 pm when a witness stopped him, grabbing him by the belt, according to authorities.

But the nogoodnik fought the do-gooder off — punching him in the left shoulder, officials said. The malefactor fled towards the Kings Highway subway station with $1,367 worth of drugs, police said.
