Pharmacy theft has VPD concerned

A large amount of drugs stolen from a pharmacy has the Vancouver Police Department nervous. They’ve issued a warning to local drug users to be aware of the risks if they use the substance.

Along with a range of prescription drugs that were taken in the robbery, were Fentanyl patches, which has police concerned due to the power of the drug. According to police, the drug is an “unforgiving drug, much more powerful than heroin.”

The thefts happened at a pharmacy in the 4600 block of Main Street around 6:45 p.m. on November 22.

Two suspects entered the store and forced their way behind the counter to grab the drugs. The suspectes then fled the store.

Police are asking anyone who has information about the robbery or the location of the drugs, to call VPD at (604) 717-3200.
