Fenton's B&C Pharmacy Robbed Again

Pharmacy has been robbed four times since Jan. 20, 2011.

continues to be a target of thieves.

Police say thieves since Jan. 20, 2011 during the early morning hours of April 2. This robbery occurred when the store was closed and it is believed the suspects exited through the back door, the Flint Journal reported. The thieves took several prescription painkillers such as oxycontin and fentnyl packs, the article stated, and police are looking at surveillance footage.

In the last incident, on Aug. 31, 2011 Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said the manager of the store called police just before 6 p.m. and said a man had entered the store handed an employee a note reading, “give me the oxy” and then he walked around the counter and pulled up his shirt revealing a black semi-automatic pistol in his belt. The manager said he had grabbed three bottles of the drug from the back of the store and handed them to the suspect, who then sprayed the manager with a substance similar to pepper spray, Aro said.

Unbelievable, that pharmacy obviously needs to improve their security. I wonder how much longer their insurance carrier will insure them????

So, son is a cop. Based on his view of things like this: Cockroaches and other lower forms of life, drug-seeking thieves often select their targets on the basis of fast getaway routes. If you were going to rob a pharmacy, a small town near a couple major highways and a host of small lakes and side roads looks inviting. Bet that the police are looking for a local or someone who lurks near enough to make the little side trip to Fenton for their fix (or products to sell).

Why would anyone work unprotected in an environment where the drug-crazed element think your place is a push-over?

Unbelievable is right. There wasn't a mention of an alarm in the article. I wonder if they have one. In the ideal world, if an after-hours attempt is made to penetrate the drug storage area, the store would go into the lock-down mode. No one could get out until ushered by the police. This is a small enough place where a decent alarm system could be employed fairly economically. One thing for sure, something has to change to get B&C off the push-over list, hopefully before a customer or employee gets hurt.
