Thieves raid another pharma warehouse

The Pharmaceutical Cargo Security Consortium has reported another pharmaceutical warehouse burglary, this time affecting a wholesaler operating a facility 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.

Five individuals broke into the warehouse lobby in a smash-and-grab raid in which they attacked the warehouse, cage and vault.  The warehouse alarm sounded but by the time police attended the scene the raiders had made off with their haul.  

The incident is being investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
