Drive-thru burglary in Langford nets prescription drugs

Vehicle forces open front doors of Pharmasave on Millstream Road

After apparently using a vehicle to push open the main doors at the Millstream Village Pharmasave, thieves made off with a collection of prescription drugs in the early morning hours Thursday.

West Shore RCMP responded to an alarm from the Langford store at 4:30 a.m. Evidence indicated that someone had gained forceful entrance through the doors and sought out the pharmacy, where prescription medications were kept, a police report stated. A variety of drugs were taken.

An immediate search of the area failed to locate any suspects, according to detachment spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz.

“We are very concerned that the prescription drugs stolen in this break-in are going to be used by individuals without seeking proper medical guidance,” she said.

Anyone with information on the location of the stolen medications, or the break-in, is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
