Smash and Grab Raid at Pharmaceutical Warehouse

Phil Taylor in a piece in reports on a smash and grab raid of a pharmaceutical warehouse in British Columbia.

The Pharmaceutical Cargo Security Consortium has reported another pharmaceutical warehouse burglary at a wholesaler in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.

The incident occurred on April 15 and resulted in the loss of around $40,000-worth of inventory, says the PCSC, which warned recently of an upsurge in suspicious activity around pharmaceutical facilities in the wake of the $76m raid on Eli Lilly's distribution facility in Enfield, Connecticut.

According to the report from PCSC, on April 15th, five individuals broke into the wholesaler’s warehouse lobby in a smash-and-grab raid in which they attacked the warehouse, cage and vault.
