PITTSBURGH (AP) - Four Ohio men are scheduled to be arraigned before a federal magistrate in Pittsburgh on charges they burglarized seven western Pennsylvania pharmacies last year.

Travis Maynard, Billy Mayhone, Michael Hanson and Mark Hicks, all of Columbus, were arrested last month and indicted last week.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents say the men typically broke in between 3:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. and cut alarm wires and disabled other security systems inside the pharmacies. Agents say the men would wait to see if police responded after disabling the alarms and, if not, they’d enter and steal prescription drugs, which were then resold on the street in Ohio.

The burglaries happened from April to September.

Their attorneys haven’t responded to emails for comment.
