In an email to Global News, SPS said the investigation is still in the preliminary stages, but they are aware of these instances and are encouraging the public to be vigilant if out at night.

Anyone who thinks their drink was tampered with, sees something, or suspects a friend may be in danger is asked to let staff at the establishment know and contact police.
