Gangs of marauding teens have stormed six Big Apple pharmacies over the past month and made off with a stash of prescription drugs — and police sources say the heists may all be linked.

The teens have raided five Duane Reade outlets in Manhattan and one Brooklyn pharmacy since Feb. 28, jumping the counters, snatching codeine and other prescription narcotics before running off, according to law enforcement sources. The loot has included oxycodone and promethazine, an antihistamine that contains codeine, the sources said.

In the most recent grab-and-run heists, the brazen thieves struck two Duane Reade pharmacies on Wednesday — just 12 minutes and 2 miles apart, law enforcement sources said.
