Weight = large amounts of drugs, or drugs for sale/distribution.
I wouldn't shed any tears if these scumbags were gone. Just yesterday we had yet another robbery for painkillers in my town.
So far their methods have been threatening notes with no weapons being shown, but it's only a matter of time before they start becoming more brazen in the pharmacies, or when they start following people home from the pharmacy and finding out where they live only to break in later.
If I am ever it a situation where I'm prescribed painkillers, I'll be sure to save an empty bottle and fill it with rat poison in case I'm burglarized. (Before everyone get's all grumpy, I'm not serious about this but it has crossed my mind.)
Spovik - wouldn't matter. People into pills know what pills are what. Not to mention the pill identifier apps that are available. :D

If other police departments are similar to the Milwaukee, Wisconsin police department there is no telling.

Sounds similar to what you report.
I know here in my neck of the woods reported home invasions are up, something about our revised Castle Doctrine and people having to call the cops to report dead home invaders.
I think either it is happening more or it is being reported more. Clearly hear more of this in the news. Fortunately, good guys are getting the bad guys often.
Locally, it seems that home invasions are up. It seems to be in particular areas or towns. I'm not sure if there is a net increase county or state wide. There also seem to be more illegally obtained or possessed firearms circulating in the area. Seems like the number of charges for firearms violations are up among people arrested or stopped for other violations.
"Home Invasions" are up in Orange County Florida. Way up. The most common time for break in to occur? 10AM - 2PM ! Right smack in the middle of the day.
