ASPEN ” An Aspen man was arrested Tuesday evening in connection with an alleged burglary at Tom’s Pharmacy, authorities said.

Aspen police took Daniel Grine, 23, into custody about 11 p.m. Tuesday. He is being held at the Pitkin County jail.

Grine was arrested at his Aspen Village residence, officer Matt Burg said Wednesday. The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest.

An estimated $20,000 to $30,000 worth of medication, narcotics and other items were reported stolen from Tom’s Pharmacy earlier this week.

Aspen police responded to a report of a break-in at 4:36 a.m. Monday at the pharmacy, which is located at 100 E. Main St.

An unidentified person later found a plastic bag “filled with various medications,” and returned it to the pharmacy Monday afternoon, authorities said. The bag was found near Yellow Brick School.

It was not clear if the bag was marked.
