Police certainly have some leads to work with in a theft from a Walkerton pharmacy last week.
“Our tapes caught everything, said Pharmacist Ryan Fullerton, owner of the Brown’s Guardian Pharmacy on Durham Street East in Walkerton.
Fullerton figures the thieves were from out of town, and have targeted smaller drug stores like his before. He watched the surveillance footage with his staff, and nobody recognized the thieves. Walkerton is a small community, where everybody knows everybody. The tapes have since been turned over to the South-Bruce OPP for investigation.
“It looked like they had done this once or twice before,” said Fullerton. “They came in, went right for the high priced items. They were in and out.”
Police said two men arrived at the pharmacy at about 1:40 p.m. last Monday, Sept. 23, and stole bottle of Vera Wang perfume, a bottle of Viva La Juicy perfume and a quantity of Gillette Fusion razor blades. Police estimated the value of the stolen goods to be more than $300.
