Appeal following Lancaster pharmacy burglary

Police are appealing for information after a pharmacy in Lancaster was burgled last week.

The offence took place between 8.10pm on Thursday the 9th February 2012 and 8.15am on Friday 10th February 2012 when the offenders smashed a window of Bowerham Road Pharmacy on Gordon Terrace.

Two CD style drugs cabinets, which contained a large amount of prescription drugs, were forced from the wall and stolen, alongside a quantity of cash.

DS Colin Forsyth from Lancaster CID said: “We would urge anyone who has any knowledge of this offence to contact Police.

“If anyone has any information about someone who is selling any prescription drugs or possessing drugs that are not personally prescribed to them I would urge them to make contact with us.

“The drugs stolen should be medically prescribed and any taken without the correct medical advice could be very harmful.”

Anyone with any information should call Lancashire Police on 101.

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
