The Vancouver Police are warning local drug users after a large quantity of drugs were recently stolen in a pharmacy robbery.

There were various prescription drugs that were taken in the robbery, but stolen fentanyl patches have caused concern for police. Drug users should be aware of the risks posed to people using this substance. Fentanyl is an unforgiving drug, much more powerful than heroin.

The warning comes after a pharmacy in the 4600 block of Main Street was robbed around 6:45 p.m. on November 22. Two suspects entered the store and forced their way behind the counter where they obtained the drugs. The suspects then ran from the store with a large quantity of pharmaceuticals.

Anyone who has information about this robbery, or knows the whereabouts of the stolen pharmaceuticals, is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-3200, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
