YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Cresskill pharmacist interrupted a burglar who left a trail of cash tonight as he fled out the back door, authorities said.

The owner of Hudson Drugs told police he’d stopped by the Union Avenue pharmacy to drop off some paperwork around 6:40 p.m. when he noticed a sunglass rack moving inside, Detective Charles Franke told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Responding officers found a smashed glass door panel, a tired iron and “quite a mess,” along with a trail of $70 or so in cash, Franke said.

The burglar apparently got a small amount of cash and nothing else from the pharmacy, he said.

A Bergen County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit did a track around the block, while the sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification processed the scene.

Investigators tonight also began canvassing area businesses for surveillance video.
