BREAKING NEWS: Pharmacy Burglary

Monday, June 2, 2008

The Brazil City Police Department is looking for information about a burglary at a local pharmacy Friday morning.

Captain Dave Archer told The Brazil Times investigators were actively pursuing leads in a burglary at Lynn's Pharmacy, 22 West National Ave., but they were also interested in any information the public might have regarding the case.

According to Archer, employees arrived for work Friday morning to discover someone had gained entry into the business, taking prescription medication with a potential street value of approximately $100,000.

If anyone has information regarding this case, contact Archer at the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

This is not good! Hope they catch these people soon

Surely this business has an alarm system?

Why are you always so negative Matt dillion? I read the comments often and you never have anything good to say about anything. You make it sound like if the pharmacy didnt have a alarm that they deserved to be robbed.

not only catch the people but find the drugs before they get distributed onto our streets and into the mouths of our children.

Negative? You evidentally don't know the meaning of the word. I was merely asking a question not that I have to explain that to you (now that was negative). If they have an alarm, and there was a burglary, did the alarm go off?

I agree with Matt Dillion. If they have a system, perhaps it's faulty and needs to be checked, that was not mentioned in the article. Matt's comment is valid as far as I'm concerned. I would assume (never good to do by the way), they would also have a camera system in place considering the drug problems in this area.

None of us knows whether or not there was a working alarm system.

You would thing that a responsible merchant dealing with drugs or firearms would have one that alerted authorities if it were set off.

We also don't know how smart the perpetrators are, there are those that can neutralize pretty sophisticated systems, this could have happened, we don't know do we...
