On Friday, February 17th, just before 11pm police were called to the Shoppers Drug Mart located at 2670 Tecumseh Road west for a report of a robbery.
The 33 year old female pharmacist told police that a man had approached the pharmacy counter at the rear of the store where she was working and asked her to put some Oxycontin in a bag. He then pulled the sleeve of his jacket up revealing a piece of wood for the pharmacist to see.
