Saw this pop up on the app Nextdoor where HCSO posts updates to the local community. It’s also on their Facebook page.

I'm curious as to what they were thinking, typically places like physical therapy don't have alot of cash on hand, they deal in credit/debit cards, checks so either were totally clueless or they knew something about that particular business the average citizen did not!

I'm sort of surprised that a physical therapy office wasn't posted. Most offices in the medical field are. Maybe the LTC was outside the building?

And secondly, how much was there to steal that "several men" wanted?

I attended 4 rehabs. Two were either in a hospital or was a hospital. However, two were in a strip mall location and were not posted. I don’t understand hitting a PT office as mine were always covered by insurance and there did not appear to be any large amount of cash present.

My guess, two choices:
1. There's more to the story about everything going on in the physical therapy clinic than is being reported
2. Thieves aren't the brightest bulbs in the string.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Maybe there are drugs kept there? Pain killers, etc? (If there's a doctor or PA as part of the practice...). Just a thought.

Would the physical therapy place have prescription meds on site that the bad guys might be trying to steal?

Nothing aside from creams, maybe steroid injections and potentially Rx samples I would imagine.

This is the reason I taught in class - "Carry 24-7 or Guess right."

I am not a very good guesser.
