HOUSTON –- A burglar known for dressing all in black and lowering down into stores through the roof struck again early Monday morning in north Houston, police said.

Houston police said the latest burglary happened at the Walgreens on Crosstimbers Street at  Irvington Boulevard around 3:30 a.m.

The suspect filled a backpack with drugs and then fled the scene the same way he or she entered.

Investigators said the way the crime was carried out was very similar to at least two other pharmacy burglaries, including one at Woodway at Chimney Rock and another at Park Place at Revelle.

In those cases police said the crook was "very methodical and professional."
