Drugs Stolen from Fenton's B&C Pharmacy Again

The following arrest information was supplied by the Fenton Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Fenton Police are searching for a suspect that they say broke into the B & C Pharmacy on Silver Lake Road around 1:30 a.m. Nov. 8.

Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said police responded to an alarm and were on scene in less than a minute. However, by then Aro said the suspect had broken into the back door of the pharmacy, took bottles of Adderall and Hydrocodone and exited the building.

Aro said the phone lines to the business had been cut and the back door had been pried open.

Police did receive video footage of the break-in, however, the suspect concealed his identity with his clothing. Aro described the suspect as a male between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches, about 200 pounds, wearing a white hoodie and a mask.

Police are continuing the investigation.

The B & C Pharmacy has been a target of multiple robberies and theft in the last two years.

Fraud

A 35-year-old Fenton woman told police she applied for a loan online and was scammed out of $195.

Aro said the woman reported a company told her she was approved for a $2,000 loan, but had to obtain a $195 Green Dot Card and share the number to show good faith. She purchased the card and shared the information and then became suspicious after the money was taken off the card, according to the report.

Police called the company, which appeared to be Florida, but the person who answered the phone was uncooperative and hung up on police.

Aro said police are trying to work with different agencies in the investigation of the case.

Missing tools

A 39-year-old Fenton man reported $4,000 worth of tools missing from his home on Nov. 5, according to police.

Aro said the man reported that someone broke into a storage area at his home on North Lemen Street and took several saws, a drill and a generator among other tools sometime between Sept. 30 and Nov. 5.

Police have no suspects.

How many times will it take before this pharmacy is held liable for all the drugs on the street now? They need to up their security.

What I find interesting in all this is that every single time this place is robbed (until recently) the owners had failed to respond by installing additional security measures such as a camera (until now) and the fact that the drugs seem to be sitting out, unsecured, in what appears to be a break room (see the microwave on the shelf?) whereas, most pharmacies store their meds behind some kind of locked wire cage. I'd think these folks would get a clue and either install a more heavy-duty back door, security fencing that can be locked over doors and windows overnight like in most cities, and keep the pharmaceuticals behind additional lock-and-key. BUT NO, they just leave everything as-is and people are surprised that they are once again robbed. Here's what I see: 1.) a small-town store with little or no security measures 2.) easy access from several major roadways, and 3.) low-risk, small town police who aren't casing the store for future robbery suspects. Guys, you're just asking to get hit again!

Oh, and as far as all the local burglaries involving missing tools: there's a repeat offender named Crista who for some ungodly reason manages to continuously violate her probation and isn't locked up, who has a history of this kind of thing. Maybe someone needs to do the right thing and turn this girl in!

Maybe the pharmacy should lose their license with the state. Reminds me of an urgent care doc who was using and distributing drugs on the middle of Silver Pkwy for years before anything was done to stop her. How long this time? Obviously, there is a big problem here. It needs to stop. Those drugs are being sold on the street.

I am a customer of this pharmacy and the owner has continued stepping the security up with each incident. No matter what you do if someone wants in bad enough they are going to get in. It happens in the chain pharmacies as well. This is his livelihood and I don't think he should be punished for being a victim of a criminal.

I see the police have the time and manpower to sit on the pharmacy. I also see that police were on scene in less than a minute. Can't be everywhere all the time.

Then why don't you call the police instead of whining about it on a blog? Or you don't wanna be a snitch?
